Egyptian police beefs up security following deadly beach attack
The Egyptian police have increased the security in the port of Hurghada as investigators are on the search for motives in a high-profile attack targeting foreigners in the prestigious beach of the Red Sea city.
The Police said on Saturday that the man who stabbed to death two German women and wounded four others in Hurghada on Friday entered into the hotel by swimming from a nearby shore.
Security was tight in Hurghada, one of Egypt’s most popular beach resorts for foreigners, as police patrolled streets and troops were deployed outside hotels.
According to the officials, the attacker was identified as a 28-year-old Abdul Rahman who is a business graduate from Kafr al-Sheikh province, and himself confessed of following the ideology of Daesh.
However, the DAESH group has yet to claim responsibility for the attack in Hurghada.
