Two suspected militants have stabbed and wounded two foreign tourists at a hotel in the Red Sea resort city of Hurghada.

Egyptian officials said policemen opened fire at the attackers, killing one and wounding the other. The seriousness of the injuries to the tourists, from Denmark and Germany, is not known.

The stabbing came just hours after the local affiliate of the Islamic State claimed responsibility for an attack a day earlier on a hotel in Cairo near the Giza Pyramids. No one was hurt in that attack.

Egypt has been battling an insurgency by Islamic militants.
