The Egyptian who stabbed to death a Czech tourist and injured two German tourists on a beach in Hurgada last year has been found to suffer from a brain disorder and will likely not be held accountable for his actions, the Egyptian charge dáffaires Rany Mohie Eldin informed Czech foreign ministry officials on Friday. He has not ruled out some form of compensation for the victim’s family.

Mr. Mohie Eldin said that the attacker was being held in detention and in view of the medical conclusions would most likely be placed in a mental health institution.
