CAIRO (AFP) - 

An assailant wounded six tourists in Egypt after attacking them with a knife on a beach in the Red Sea resort town of Hurghada on Friday, the interior ministry said

The assailant has been arrested and is being questioned to determine his motives, the ministry said in a statement.

The ministry said the assailant swam to the beach before attacking the tourists.

In January 2016, three tourists in Hurghada had been wounded in a stabbing attack by two assailants with apparent Islamic State group sympathies.
