Through its official Twitter account, the Embassy has recommended avoiding the area and following the instructions of the Egyptian authorities, as well as maintaining the precautions recommended by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
At the same time, the Government has condemned the attack in "the strongest terms" and has expressed its condolences to the relatives of the victims. In addition, he reiterated his support for the Egyptian authorities in the fight "against the scourge of terrorism and the threat it represents against the coexistence and economic development of the country."
The Ministry of the Interior affirmed immediately after the attack that two tourists of Vietnamese nationality had died and added that another twelve people – ten Vietnamese tourists and the driver and a representative of an agency, both of Egyptian nationality -, had been wounded.
The Prime Minister, Mustafa Madbuli, later confirmed that the representative of the tourist agency, which would be a guide, has died in the hospital because of the injuries suffered in the attack. Also, the general prosecutor of Egypt, Nabil Sadek, has indicated that another of the tourists has died hours after the event.
According to the information collected by the local newspaper 'Al Ahram', the bomb had been attached to a wall on Al Mariuteya Street. For the moment, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Sadek has ordered the opening of an investigation to determine the nature of the material used in the manufacture of the pump. Also, the recordings of the security cameras in the area will be seized.
