At least a dozen tourists and their guides were shot dead as they came under attack by Egyptian security forces today
in al-wahat al-bahrya in Giza
The military and police apparently beleived they were chasing terrorists.
Among those killed were Mexican tourists and their guides. Another dozen people were injured.
Egyptian authorities said while police and armed forces were pursuing “terrorist elements” they had accidentally engaged with a tourist convoy.
Despite this incredible denacle, the government puts the blame on the tourists, insisting that they should not have been in that area and their presence there was “illegal”
