Mexico demands Egypt compensate attack victims


MEXICO CITY: Mexico’s government demanded on Thursday that Egypt compensate tourists mistakenly attacked by Egyptian security forces at the weekend in a deadly incident that outraged the Latin American nation. The demand was made in a diplomatic note delivered by deputy foreign minister Carlos de Icaza to Egypt’s ambassador to Mexico, as survivors and families of victims were flying home with Foreign Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu. Eight Mexican tourists and four Egyptians were killed in Sunday’s attack in the Western Desert. Ten people were wounded, including six Mexicans.
