Two Israeli tourists and an Egyptian citizen were killed on Sunday when an Egyptian police officer opened fire on Israeli tourists in the Mansheya area of the city of Alexandria in Egypt, according to RT Arabic, which cites an official from the African country’s security service.
“Two members of an Israeli tourist group were killed, one of the Egyptians, and another was injured,” an Egyptian security source told RT Arabic. “The police officer was immediately arrested and legal measures are being taken against him. The injured person was transferred to the hospital for treatment.”
The police officer believed to be responsible for the shooting is understood to have used his personal firearm in the attack, which took place close to the popular tourist stop Pompey’s Pillar.
