Bodies of two Czech tourists to be transferred Tuesday

The bodies of two Czech tourists, who died last week under yet unknown circumstances in Egypt, will most likely be transported to the Czech Republic on Tuesday, according to the Foreign Ministry. The mother and her 8-year old daughter were found dead in their hotel room in the Egyptian resort of Hurghada by the husband of the woman and father of the child, who is being prevented from leaving the country by Egyptian authorities. The father has not been charged by the police, but has been asked to remain in the country as the only known person connected to the incident. Doctors in Hurghada have said that the two victims must have ingested a strong poison, most likely in liquid form. The official results of the autopsy examination have not been released.
