Gunman opens fire on tourist bus in Egypt


A gunman has opened fire on a tourist bus in Egypt. Egyptian authorities are currently hunting down two masked gunmen. There were no deaths related to the incident. There was damage caused to the facade of the Three Pyramids Hotel.

The Egyptian government has been battling an insurgency based in northern Sinai, with attacks multiplying after the military overthrew Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in 2013. The uprising has seen a number of attacks on the country’s mainland in recent months.

Some extremists in Sinai have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group and claimed the downing of a Russian airliner that killed 224 people there last year.
