TERROR has struck Egypt after six female foreign tourists were stabbed in the resort of Hurghada.

Two German women were stabbed to death and four other foreign tourists were wounded in a beach attack at a seafront hotel in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Hurghada, according to authorities.

The assault came just hours after five policemen were killed in a shooting near some of Egypt’s most famous pyramids outside of Cairo, The Guardian reported.

The knifeman killed two German women and wounded two other tourists at the Zahabia hotel in Hurghada and then swam to a neighbouring beach, where he attacked at least two more people – at the Sunny Days El Palacio resort – before he was arrested, according to officials and security sources.

“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.”

Abdelaziz said two of the injured people were Czech and two were Armenian. They were being treated a local hospital. The Czech foreign ministry tweeted that one Czech woman sustained a minor leg injury.

A security official said the attacker, a man in his 20s dressed in a black T-shirt and jeans, wielded a knife and intentionally sought to attack foreigners.

“Stay away, I don’t want Egyptians,” the assailant had said in Arabic during the attack, according to the official.

Around 231,000 British nationals visited Egypt in 2016 and most visits are trouble-free. However, holidaymakers will no doubt be questioning how safe Egypt is after the incident which has striking similarities to the attack the popular resort of Port El Kantaoui in Tunisia back in June 2015, Express UK reports.

The government website’s foreign travel advice states terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Egypt.

Holidaymakers and British nationals are warned to vigilant at all times, avoid crowded places and follow the advice of the Egyptian authorities and the travel company, if you have one.

It states there have been threats to western nationals, institutions, and businesses posted on websites and social media.

The main threat to foreigners is from extremists linked to Daesh-Sinai.

President Sisi announced a 3-month state of emergency on 9 April after an explosion killed 44 people, for which Daesh claimed responsibility.

The attack came just hours after five policemen were gunned down in the city of Giza when suspected Islamic militants opened fire on their vehicle in the early hours of the morning.

In January 2016, three tourists in Hurghada were been wounded in a stabbing attack by two assailants with apparent ISIS sympathies.

Insanity.

God Bless.
