In the Red Sea city of Hurghada, Egypt, three tourists, two Austrians and a Swede, were stabbed at the Bella Vista Hotel on Jan. 8 when at least two attackers entered the 4-star hotel looking for kidnap victims. All three survived with nonserious wounds. Hotel security killed one of the attackers and apprehended the other. One of the attackers was said to be wearing an explosive belt.
The previous day, an Israeli-Arab tour bus was attacked in Cairo. No one was hurt. Daesh claimed responsibility, saying the bus was “carrying Jews.”
In an unrelated incident, at least nine people, including six policemen, were killed by a bomb that exploded during a police raid on a suspected militant hideout in a Cairo apartment building. Daesh claimed responsibility for the bomb, but Egyptian officials blamed the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned Islamist political party.
