Egypt |Suicide Bomber Strikes Temple of Karnak

by on June 10, 2015

A suicide bomb attack has been carried out on an ancient site popular with tourists in the Egyptian city of Luxor.

The explosion happened at the Temple of Karnak, which alongside the pyramids, is one of the most popular destinations for foreign visitors.

There is no information yet on casualties.

Police claim to have foiled two other suicide attacks which also targeted the site next to the Nile.

It is the first attack on a tourist attraction in Luxor since 1997, when Islamic militants killed 58 people after opening fire on tourists at the city’s 3,400-year-old Hatshepsut Temple.
