The attacker will be taken to Cairo, where he will be interrogated by investigators of the State Security Prosecutor's Office. Previously, the suspect was interrogated by police officers in the province of the Red Sea.
A man armed with a knife attacked foreign tourists in one of the hotels in Hurghada, Egypt. Two German nationals were killed and other four women, including two Armenian nationals, were wounded.
