At least two foreign tourists killed in knife attack at Egyptian resort



Two foreign tourists were killed and four others were wounded by an attacker armed with a knife at an Egyptian holiday resort in Hurghada, the interior ministry said Friday.

The motive for the attack was still under investigation, Egypt’s interior ministry and security sources said, adding that the assailant was arrested immediately. The wounded tourists were rushed to a local hospital.

The ministry said the two tourists who were fatally stabbed were Ukrainian, while an Egyptian security official later said they were German.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorised to speak to the media, said the suspect was dressed in a black T-shirt and blue jeans and intentionally sought to target foreigners.
Preliminary investigations indicated that the suspect swam from a nearby public beach to access the Red Sea holiday resort.
The attack came hours after five policemen were shot to death in Cairo's twin city of Giza when suspected Islamic militants opened fire on their vehicle early in the morning. The MENA news agency quoted an interior ministry statement as saying the gunmen attacked the checkpoint in the Badrashin area on Friday. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Three tourists were wounded in a stabbing attack in Hurghada by two assailants with apparent Islamic State group sympathies in January 2016.
