Egypt Security Forces Accidentally Kill Mexican Tourists

“Egyptian security forces opened fire on a caravan of tourist vehicles in the country’s Western Desert late Sunday night, killing at least 12 people visiting from Mexico and injuring 10 others, among them Mexican tourists and their Egyptian tour guides, officials said. The tourists were mistakenly killed by a ‘joint force from the police and armed forces’ who were pursuing ‘terrorist elements’ in an area of the desert, according to a brief statement posted to the official Facebook page of Egypt’s Ministry of Interior. The episode happened around midnight, security officials said.”
