The BBC's Middle East correspondent, Lina Sinjab, who is in Cairo, says some families have already carried out funerals with empty coffins for their loved ones.

She said: "The rituals here are they have to bury the dead as soon as they die, but they are in a really difficult position because they don't know if the bodies would ever arrive, so they're still waiting at the moment.

"They did this as a symbolic move to commemorate their lost ones."
