One gunmen was arrested at the scene and security forces surrounded the other attacker in another part of Cairo, said the sources. President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi has previously declared an all-out war on Islamist militants, who hope to destabilize Egypt through suicide bombings and shooting attacks. This occurred after the moment when some extremists in Sinai have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group. For the instant no other details are known about the authors of the atentat. Tourism is one of the most important parts of Egypt’s economy with approximately 14.7 million visitors. Significant security threats have had an ongoing affect on the industry over the past years. Now attackers target foreigners who are generally non-Muslims. In the first half of 2014 the number of tourists further declined by 25% as compared with the same period of 2013.
