Two tourists have been killed and four injured after a knife attack on an Egyptian beach resort.

The victims of Friday’s attack, in the popular Red Sea resort town of Hurghada, were reportedly all female and of different nationalities.

The two killed are believed to be Ukrainian nationals.

Egypt’s Interior Ministry said a preliminary investigation showed the attacker appeared to have swum from a nearby public beach to the holiday resort.

He has been arrested and is being questioned by police.

The motive of his attack is not known.

The ministry said the tourists were rushed to a local hospital but gave no further details.

Hurghada is one of Egypt’s tourist hubs, known for its scuba diving, and stretches 25 miles along the country’s Red Sea coast.

It has a host of resorts restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

The attack came hours after five policemen were shot to death in Cairo’s twin city of Giza when suspected Islamic militants opened fire on their vehicle early in the morning.
