German Media: Hurghada knife attacker acted on Daesh orders

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.

The four injured include a Czech woman, two Armenian women and a woman whose nationality has not yet been identified, Ahram said. The attacker entered the hotel and randomly attacked the tourists.

"He has been arrested and is now being questioned by police to know his reasons". It has also targeted the country's Coptic Christian population in suicide bombings, shootings and knife attacks.

"We condemn this cowardly and malicious act that seemed to have targeted specifically tourists, who wanted to spend a recreational time at the beach".

Egypt's Interior Ministry said in a statement that the attack occurred about 11am and that the assailant was taken into custody about noon. The conditions of the surviving women were not immediately available.

Pictures purportedly appeared to show him nabbed and pinned down inside a luggage cart by hotel staff.
