The dead were first identified as Ukrainian, but Major General Mohamed El-Hamzawi, Red Sea region's security manager, later said they were German.

The suspect is being questioned by police to determine his motives, the interior ministry said.

There was confusion about the nationalities of the four wounded victims as well.

Earlier in the day, Egyptian ministry of interior said six foreign female tourists were injured in a knife attack in a beach resort of the city.

The assailant was arrested immediately and the victims rushed to hospital. However, initial media reports say that two tourists died from their injuries.

Security had been increased in the resort following an attack on tourists back in 2016. It happened at the beach of a hotel with the attacker gaining access to the tourists by swimming from a public area.

An Islamic State group bombing of a Russian airliner carrying holidaymakers from a south Sinai resort in 2015 killed all 224 people on board and decimated the country's tourism sector.

The shadowy group Hasm, believed to be affiliated with the banned Muslim Brotherhood, has claimed responsibility for similar attacks.
