Egypt interior ministry says 'terrorist attack' foiled, two attackers killed

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian security forces foiled a “terrorist attack” in Luxor on Wednesday, killing two attackers and wounding a third, the Interior Ministry said in a statement on its Facebook page.

There was no immediate claim of the responsibility for the attack, which a health ministry spokesman said had left four Egyptians wounded.
