Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto condemned the attack on his Twitter account, describing it as a tragic incident, and demanded a full investigation.

Egypt's police and military said they killed 12 Egyptians and Mexicans and wounded 10 when they accidentally shot at a Mexican tourist convoy while engaging militants in the western desert.
