Officials detained Italian national Evan Pascal Moro in Marsa Alam on Saturday (August 12, 2017) after he confessed to beating to death an Egyptian engineer who was overseeing construction work at a Red Sea hotel, according to a statement by the Ministry of Tourism.
The incident took place in an area of the hotel that was under construction and not open to guests. According to local media reports, Moro was accompanied with his two children at that time.
Reuters reports that an Egyptian tourism official based in Italy was travelling to Marsa Alam to take charge of the children, aged 6 and 15, and bring them back to Italy.
