Delegates enter the venue for an economic conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, Friday, March 13, 2015. Police, soldiers and masked special forces wielding new assault rifles man checkpoints along the main roads of Egypt’s Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, which has been freshly polished for an international conference opening Friday seeking billions of dollars in investment. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has staked much of his legitimacy on fixing an economy deeply damaged by four years of turmoil since the 2011 uprising that ousted longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak.
