The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed today that the two women murdered in the Hurghada knife attacks were German nationals.
A spokeswoman for the ministry said in a statement: “we deeply regret to confirm that two German tourists were murdered in the Hurghada attack.”
They were stabbed on a beach, Friday, in an attack that led to injuries in four other women. The two women were previously thought to be Ukrainian.
The assailant has since been apprehended by Egyptian authorities.
