12 Sep, 2015

Egyptian security forces kill 12 Mexican and Egyptian tourists and injure 10 in the country’s Western Desert after mistaking them for terrorists. The incident occurred within a so-called restricted area, and the tourists were in cars that were not authorised for tours and they did not have permits for the trip. Mexican President Enrique Nieto:

Mexico condemns these acts against our citizens and has demanded that the Egyptian government conduct an exhaustive investigation of what happened.
