Two tourists were killed Friday when a man attacked a group of tourists with a knife in Egypt's Red Sea resort city of Hurghada, state-run Ahram Online website reported.

The tourists who died were Ukrainian, the interior ministry said.

A similar attack took place in Hurghada in January 2016 when two attackers armed with a gun, a knife and a suicide belt landed on the beach of a hotel, wounding two foreign tourists, according to security sources.

The tourists were transferred to a hospital to receive treatment.

It also said the attacker had swum from a nearby public beach to access the holiday resort.

Hurghada, a popular scuba diving spot, stretches for 40km of Egypt's Red Sea coast.

Since then, Russian Federation and Britain have refused to allow their aircraft to fly to Sharm el Sheikh, dealing a heavy blow to the resort despite extensive security improvements by Egyptian officials.

Security has been boosted in resorts around the country, as the tourism industry provides Egypt with much-needed revenues.

The ministry said three gunmen opened fire on a police auto and then fled, killing a non-commissioned officer, three conscripts and a police employee.

The assailant is arrested, he is being questioned to determine the motives of the crime.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
