Suicide attack at Karnak temple complex in Luxor

Police in Egypt say they have foiled an attempted suicide bomb attack at the Temple of Karnak in Luxor, one of the country's most popular tourist sites.

Three men reportedly approached a barrier at the entrance to the temple complex on Wednesday morning.

When confronted by police, one of the attackers detonated an explosive belt he was wearing. A second was shot dead and a third severely wounded.

Two civilians and two policemen were injured but no tourists were hurt.
