Germany Affirmed 2 Nationals Killed In Egypt Resort Attack


On Saturday Berlin said 2 ladies who were killed in the wake of being stabbed in an Egyptian shoreline resort were German nationals, affirming prior reports.

“We would now be able to tragically affirm that 2 German visitors died in the assault at Hurghada,” a foreign ministry statement said.

Friday’s assault in the Red Sea resort left 4 others injured.

The aggressor, who had swum aground, was captured and addressed.

“We don’t know his motives yet, he could be crazy or perturbed — it’s too early to tell,” a senior interior ministry official told AFP.

In January 2016, three travelers in Hurghada were injured in a wounding strike by two attackers with obvious ISIS sensitivities.

There was no prompt claim of responsibility regarding Friday’s wounding.

Hurghada is one of Egypt’s most well known beach resorts, particularly with Ukrainians and European tourists.
