West Thebes - Guards
About ten years passed since the awful Luxor Massacre. It took place on 17 November 1997 at Deir el-Bahri – the West Bank of Luxor. I remember that days when the world has shuddered from this event.
In the mid-morning attack, Islamic terrorists massacred 62 tourists at the attraction. The assailants, who numbered six and were armed with automatic firearms and knives, were disguised as members of the security forces. They descended on the Temple of Hatshepsut in the early morning and killed 62 people. The attackers then hijacked a bus, but armed Egyptian tourist police and military forces arrived soon afterwards and engaged in a gun battle with the six terrorists, who were later killed or committed suicide.
The tourist industry was injured very much. During several years almost nobody from Western countries visited Egypd (exept Russian tourists). Years passed and we fogot it. Nevertheless the danger still exists…
