Egyptian security forces accidentally shoot at Mexican tourist convoy, killing 12
"The incident resulted in the death of 12 Mexicans and Egyptians and the injury of 10 others who have been transferred to hospitals," the ministry said in a statement.
It added that the convoy was made up of four four-wheel drive vehicles and that there would be an investigation into how and why the tourists entered an off-limits area.
Egypt is battling an insurgency that gained pace after the military ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in mid-2013 after mass protests against his rule.
The insurgency, mounted by Islamic State's Egyptian affiliate, has killed hundreds of soldiers and police and has started to attack Western targets.
By all means, let's import more Muslim refugees into the United States -- hundreds of thousands of them if Democrats had their way. That should make things better. After all, the higher the percentage of a country's citizens are Muslims, the more that peace and tranquility rule the day.
