An officer guarding the Aumd al-Sawari sanctuary in the El Manshiyya area opened fire. The Egyptian television station “Extra News” reported, that the police officer assigned to security the Manshiyya area in Alexandria he fired his personal weapon, while one of the groups of Israeli tourists was present at the Sanctuary. In addition to two Israeli tourists, an Egyptian citizen, the tour guide, was also killed, while another was injured. The policeman was immediately arrested and the injured man was taken to hospital.
