Egyptian Cairo airport authorities stopped a Saudi passenger and barred him from boarding a flight to his country after they found that he was heavily drunk.
The man has just checked in and swayed towards security to have his passport stamped when he was stopped by the officer in charge.
“The officer called the airport doctor after he noticed that the man was heavily drunk as he could not walk properly and was uttering strange words,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Sabq said.
“After the doctor checked him, he decided that he must not board the flight as he poses threat to the passengers and the plane in such a condition.”
