Egyptian authorities conclude investigation into deaths of two Czech tourists

The authorities in Egypt have concluded an investigation into the deaths of two Czech tourists who died of poisoning in the Hurgada resort last summer, a spokeswoman for the Czech Foreign Ministry said. The result of the investigation is not clear, according to the ministry, which is yet to receive an official report on the case. A 36-year-old woman and her eight-year-old daughter were found dead by the father of the family in their hotel room last July. The man was held in Egypt for several months but was released and returned to the Czech Republic in October.
