CAIRO – 12 August 2017: In a shocking incident, an Italian tourist beat an Egyptian engineer to death at a hotel under construction on Thursday in the Marsa Alam resort town on the Red Sea.

Samia Sami, head of the Central Administration of Internal Bureaus of the Ministry of Tourism, said that she received a report from the Hurghada bureau saying that an Egyptian engineer had a fight with an Italian tourist named Evan Pascal Moro, who was standing with his two daughters (6 years old and 15 years old) in a construction site of a hotel in Marsa Alam.

The victim asked the assailant to stay away from the construction site, but the tourist verbally and physically assaulted the Egyptian to death.

The police arrested the Italian tourist on a murder charge, to be held for four days in prison pending the outcome of a forensic investigation.

On the other hand, Emad Fathy, the Egyptian tourism consultant in Italy, said that he notified the Italian Consul in Hurghada, Alberto Pratini, of the incident and ordered a special babysitter to accompany the two children.

Fathy added that he ministry is currently coordinating with the Italian Embassy in Cairo and the Italian Consulate in Hurghada to arrange the travel of the two children to Italy as soon as possible.
