A suspected ISIS terrorist killed two German holidaymakers and injured four others in a horrific stabbing spree in Egypt. The killer swam from a public beach to the Sunny Days El Palacio hotel in the tourist resort of Hurghada before knifing victims.

He appeared to target only women and shouted at locals “stay away, I don’t want Egyptians”. The attacker was captured at the scene and was pinned down and wheeled away in a luggage trolley. Three of the injured were from Serbia and one from Poland, according to reports.

The motive for the attack is now under investigation, Egypt’s Interior Ministry and security sources said. But the attack bears similarities to the atrocity in the Tunisian resort of Sousse which left 30 British holidaymakers dead. ISIS gunman Seifeddine Rezgui slaughtered the tourists on a beach at the Imperial Marhaba hotel in 2015.
