Egypt Hurghada stabbing: Two Ukrainian tourists killed

Two Ukrainian tourists, reported to be women, have been killed in mass stabbings at a hotel in the popular Red Sea resort of Hurghada, Egyptian medical officials say.

The suspect is being questioned by police to determine his motives, the interior ministry said.

The attacker appears to have swum from a nearby public beach to gain access to the resort, officials say.

Egypt's security forces are dealing with an Islamist uprising in the country's Sinai Peninsula. The tourist industry has been targeted by militants in North Africa over the past few years.

In June 2015 at least 39 people, mostly foreigners, were killed and 36 injured in an attack on a beach in the Tunisian resort town of Sousse.
