Mexico Presses Egypt for Inquiry Into Deadly Attack on Tourists
Mexico’s foreign minister pressed Egypt’s leaders on Wednesday for a full investigation of an attack by the security forces on picnicking tourists last Sunday that killed a dozen people, including eight Mexicans.
The killings on Sunday strained relations between the two countries and raised concerns about the rules governing the use of lethal force by Egypt’s military and police. The security forces stand accused of failing to discriminate between militants and civilians in campaigns against insurgents, a charge that Egypt’s government rejects. Details
