Egypt Hurghada stabbing: Two Ukrainian tourists killed

Egypt Hurghada stabbing: Two Ukrainian tourists killed

The attacker in Hurghada stabbed the tourists in the face, neck and feet, according to the security official.

Russian Federation has since suspended its flights to Egypt.

Egypt is fighting Islamist insurgents in the Sinai Peninsula where they mainly target security forces but militants have also attacked tourism targets as well as Coptic Christians and churches.

All the victims of the attack in the Red Sea resort town of Hurghada were female.

The suspect is being questioned by police to determine his motives, the interior ministry said. The conditions of the surviving women were not immediately available.

Elhadidi said on his Facebook page that the attacker was not a terrorist - "nothing but an unemployed lowlife who fought with two German ladies".

United Kingdom takes steps towards Brexit with Repeal Bill
The repeal bill sets out that these changes will be made through an existing parliamentary process known as "secondary legislation".

Egypt has witnessed many terror attacks since the January 2011 revolution that toppled former president Hosni Mubarak.

Hurghada, some 400km south of the capital Cairo is one of Egypt's most popular vacation spots on the Red Sea.

Investigators believe the attacker swam from a public beach, according to the ministry.

Earlier on Friday, five security personnel were killed when militants opened fire randomly on a checkpoint in the Egyptian province of Giza.

The assailants opened fire on a police auto before fleeing, according to the ministry of the Interior. Other sources claim that the reason for the attack was a quarrel.

The perpetrator of a knife attack on tourists in Hurghada, was a native of Egypt and probably acted on the instructions of the "Islamic state". Previous attacks in Cairo have been claimed by Islamic State and by Hasm, a shadowy militant group thought to have been drawn from the ranks of the banned Muslim Brotherhood.
