Me­mo­rial for Mex­i­can tourists

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Egypt will build a me­mo­rial for Mex­i­can tourists mis­tak­enly killed in a mil­i­tary strike last year while a travel as­so­ci­a­tion will com­pen­sate their families and sur­vivors, Mex­ico’s gov­ern­ment said. Eight tourists and four Egyp­tians were killed by se­cu­rity forces on Septem­ber 13, 2015, when they came un­der fire dur­ing a lunch break in the Western Desert. Sur­vivors told Mex­i­can diplo­mats that they came un­der at­tack from a plane and he­li­copters.
