Egypt re­sort knife­man sat with vic­tims

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

THE Egyp­tian man who stabbed two Ger­man tourists to death sat and spoke to them be­fore pro­duc­ing a large kitchen knife.

Ab­del-rah­man Shaa­ban, 29, then fled the scene in Hurghada, chased by work­ers at the Red Sea re­sort and se­cu­rity guards.

He rushed into the ho­tel next door where he in­jured four fe­male tourists.

Shaa­ban shouted at pur­suers: “Stay back, I am not af­ter Egyp­tians.”

They even­tu­ally caught up with him, dis­armed and pinned him down and later handed him over to po­lice.

Univer­sity graduate Shaa­ban stabbed the women in the face, neck and feet.
