MOSCOW, April 03, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Federal Tourism Agency (Rostourism) has reiterated its recommendations for Russian vacationers not to leave resort areas in Egypt over terrorism threats in big cities.
“According to reports from the Russian Foreign Ministry, late on April 2, two explosive devices went off with an interval of several minutes near a police post at the building of the Cairo University’s Engineering Department. One person was killed and five more were injured,” Rostourism said in a release posted on its official website on Thursday. “The killed man was a brigadier general, chief of criminal police of the Giza district. Later on, another explosive device was activated near the site of the first two blasts.”
“In the context of these developments, Rostourism thinks it necessary to remind Russian vacationers in Egypt of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s recommendations to exercise caution, not to leave resort areas and refrain from visiting big cities and districts characterized by increased terrorist and criminal risks,” the agency said.
According to official statistics, about 1.9 million Russian tourists spend their vacations at Egypt’s Red Sea resorts in 2013.
