Egypt's tourism minister to visit attacked tourists

Egypt's tourism minister Hisham Zazou is expected to visit European victims of a suspected terror attack on a hotel in a Red Sea resort.

Three foreign tourists have been stabbed by two suspected Islamic State militants.

The attackers were shot by police and the area remains on high alert.

Egyptian Ambassador to the UK, Nasser Kamel has said holiday destinations are becoming targets: “Terrorist organisations like ISIS are spreading ideology and some people are picking up this ideology of hate and trying to do crazy things.

“So Egypt is not less safe than any of those places, we are all facing a threat and no place is 100% safe.”
