Two German tourists stabbed to death on Egyptian beach

Canadians are being warned to avoid all non-essential travel to Egypt and to "exercise a high degree of caution" when traveling to Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh, as Egyptian investigators probe into a knife-attack that killed two German tourists and wounded at least four others Friday in Hurghada, a popular seaside vacation spot on the Red Sea.

The German Foreign Ministry said it now has the "sad certainty" that two German female tourists died on Friday's attack.

The interior ministry also announced early this week the killing of six militants in Southern Egypt as security forces faced militants in gunfire exchange.

Meanwhile, speaking to reporters outside the state Assembly, Tejashwi claimed that calls for his resignation are "only in the media".

The assault came just hours after a shooting near some of Egypt's most famous pyramids outside of Cairo killed five policemen.

Two Germans were killed and three from Serbia and one from Poland have been taken to hospital for their wounds, their conditions are not yet known.

The fact that the attacker had to swum to the resort points to the tight security measures in place around the permiters of such resorts, the HIS statement said.

Abu Qura communicated with ISIS in Iraq and Syria via the internet, and he was given the task to carry out the attack against foreign tourists in Hurghada.

"According to what we know, the act was a deliberate attack on foreign tourists - a particularly devious and criminal act that leaves us sad, dismayed and furious", she added. But the attacks have spilled to urban areas including capital Cairo. In January 2016, two assailants armed with a gun, a knife and a suicide belt landed on the beach of a hotel in Hurghada, wounding two foreign tourists, security sources said. They were only lightly wounded.

Attacks targeting tourists across Northern Africa in recent years, and the unrest since the country revolution in 2011, have made a significant dent in Egypt's heavily tourist reliant economy.
