An Egyptian policeman has opened fire at a popular visitor attraction gunning down and killing at least two Israeli tourists.
The cowardly attack happened on Sunday in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, and the officer is understood to have shot dead at least two Israelis and one Egyptian, local media reported.
Extra News television channel, which has close ties to Egyptian security agencies, quoted an unidentified security official as saying that another person was injured in the attack which took place in the Pompey’s Pillar tourist site in Alexandria.
The suspected assailant was detained, it reported. Israel’s Zaka rescue service reported two people killed in Alexandria.
In London police patrols have been stepped up amid fears of Islamists being inspired to carry out attacks on Jews in Britain.

Home Secretary Suella Braverman has said she expects the police to “use the full force of the law” against displays of support for Hamas after videos emerged of people appearing to celebrate the attack on Israel.
Metropolitan Police patrols have been increased in London after the force was urged to intervene by immigration minister Robert Jenrick, who shared a video posted on social media by Countdown presenter Rachel Riley after Hamas launched its biggest attack in years on Israel.
Riley posted on X on Saturday saying she passed two cars in west London driving with Palestinian flags flying from each window, “bouncing up and down in their cars” and “seemingly celebrating like they were having a party”.
She later posted a video which showed people waving Palestinian flags, beeping car horns and clapping in Acton.

Both leaders agreed on working to avoid further deterioration of the situation, the statement said. Both Egypt and Jordan are close allies with the U.S. and are the first Arab nations to establish diplomatic ties with Israel.
