An Egyptian man stabbed two German tourists to death and wounded four other foreigners at a popular seaside vacation spot on Friday, officials and witnesses said.
The knifeman killed the two German women, and wounded two other tourists at the Zahabia hotel in Hurghada and then swam to a neighboring beach to attack at least two more people at the Sunny Days El Palacio resort before he was arrested, officials and security sources said.
“He had a knife with him and stabbed each of them three times in the chest. They died on the beach,” the security manager at El Palacio hotel, Saud Abdelaziz, told Reuters.
“He jumped a wall between the hotels and swam to the other beach.”
