International passengers departing Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh continued to line up for flights on Sunday, as the first of three teams of Russian inspectors was dispatched to the country to examine airport security following last weekend's airline disaster.Britain and several airlines have stopped normally scheduled flights to the resort, while Russia has suspended all travel to Egypt because of security concerns.Russian authorities did not give details on what specific security issues the inspections teams would be examining. The Mideast's biggest airline -- Emirates -- said it was reviewing its security procedures in Egypt, but remains committed to maintaining flights to Egypt, calling it "an enormously important market".
