Two victims of Red Sea terror attack were German tourists

An Egyptian security official says the two tourists who were stabbed to death Friday at a hotel in the Red Sea resort of Hurghada were German. Four other tourists were injured. The assailant snuck into the hotel by swimming up from a nearby beach. He was arrested. Egyptian officials have refrained from attributing the terror attack to any organization, although the Islamic State has frequently targeted the tourist industry, which provides the Egyptian economy with much of its life blood.
