    From few hours ago, the city of Hurghada in Red Sea governorate was the center of attention of the world with shocking news about an attack in a hotel there Friday evening.
    According to the early information spread in Egyptian media from news websites and TV channels, unknown militants stormed "Belle Vista" hotel attacking the tourists at the Hotel Lobby there and that the security forces were handling the situation there.

    Hurghada "Reuters"
    Within few minutes, news reports based on anonymous security sources started to show up in popular news websites like Youm 7 and Al-Masry Al-Youm claiming that those militants were carrying the Daesh/ISIS flag and that one of them was wearing an explosive belt.

    The sources began to call those militants as terrorists.
    Sooner, we read that two tourists were injured and  at least, two terrorists were killed on the spot.
    Then, even more alleged details began to spread online like how those alleged terrorists came from Sinai through the Red Sea and more ignorance revealed in itself in a famous Arabic news channel that do not know that Hurghada is not located in Sinai.

    The reports went viral internationally online.
    We are still recovering from the Russian airliner crash and yesterday we had another bizarre incident involving tourists which Daesh claimed its responsibility despite it failed.
    As soon as I read the news alert about the attack in Hurghada, I thought about Tunisia and the terrorist attack in its resort city.
    I wondered if it was some sort of lone wolves style attack especially with all the reports in the media.
    At 9:45 PM Cairo Local time, Egypt's ministry of interior issued its first statement about the attack and it had another version of the story.

    صرح مسئول مركز الإعلام الأمنى بوزارة الداخلية أنه مساء اليوم الجمعة 8 الجارى قام مجهولين بالتسلل والدخول إلى فندق ( بيلا...
    Posted by ‎الصفحة الرسمية لوزارة الداخلية‎ on Friday, January 8, 2016
    The media center spokesperson stated that on 8 January Friday even , unidentified people sneaked and entered the "Bella Vista" Hotel in Hurghada through the restaurant on the street and threatened the hotel guests using knives.
    The security forces assigned to secure the Hotel dealt with them. In reaction , the two men tried to escape but in their attempt , one of them was killed and he is called : Mohamed Hassan Mahmoud Mahfouz , born in 1994 and lived in Giza  while the other suspect was injured badly. They were carrying a sound gun "Starting gun" and knives.
    Three tourists "2 Austrians and 1 Swede" were injured during the attempt of the preparators. The injured were transferred to the hospital to recieve medical treatment.
    The Prosecution started its investigation. 

    Now interestingly the official statement of the Egyptian ministry of interior did not mention or include the following words in Arabic "Terrorism", "Terrorists", "Daesh", "ISIS","Sea" or "Explosive belt".
    The MOI was speaking about two suspects only.
    What is even stranger are the statements of the minister of tourism Hisham Zazaou at 9.58 PM.
    In statements to Youm 7 news website, the minister said that according to the information he received on the phone from the Red Sea governor, the attack was actually an attempted robbery by two unidentified suspects.
    All the news reports in Egypt speaking about the ISIS Flag and the explosive ballet are based on quotes by anonymous security sources.
    At the same time online, alleged photos showing the ISIS flag and allegedly  explosives vest as 3 men "2 dead and one alive" in the alleged crime scene went viral online.
    They were not released by the interior ministry but they found their way online till they landed to the Daily Mail Front Page for hours.
    Then the MOI official spokesperson Abu Bakr Abdel Karim spoke on Al-Mehwar TV channel on air declaring that that no explosive vests nor belts were found in the scene !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    He also added that the investigations were still undergoing to determine if it was a criminal or terrorist act.
    On Twitter, people began to share the tweets of a young man who knows somebody in Hurghada near the Hotel who told him that it was a terrorist attack but rather a fight between unfortunate youth that used firearms outside the hotel and the security thought that they were terrorists and things erupted !!
    Strangely, that version of the story is confirmed by a tourist who is in Hurghada who spoke about a fight between three young men.

    Anybody hearing on the TV that an attack has taken place where I am in Egypt, be assured I am fine. It was 3 men arguing...

    I found another version of the story from a lady who works in tourism.


    Hurghada: The inside story is a crazy story !! A man who wanted money from the hotel owner told him he will spoil his...

    So technically, we got 4 versions of the story "a terrorist attack", "Just an attack that is being investigated according to MOI officially",  "Robbery according to the minister of tourism and Red Sea governor" and a "fight between youth that turned ugly according to eye-witnesses".
    Seriously, I do not know what to believe.
    Shockingly, Youm 7 published a video showing the interrogation of the suspected injured attacker while he was in semi-coma and asked about his name.
    I am quite surprised to find that video is published online and has gone viral.
    Aside it is unacceptable to publish such interrogation in that way even for an alleged suspected terrorist who still got rights according to the laws whether locally or internationally, I do not know if it is legal to publish interrogations publicly in the media like that when the General prosecution has not finished its investigation.
    Now whether it is a terrorist attack or a robbery or just a fight that gone mad and sadly, there is one fact: It is another blow to the tourism industry in Egypt.

    After few hours from now, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi will inaugurate the first session of the Egyptian parliament aka House of Representatives in Cairo.
    Getting ready for action "Reuters" 

    The 596 MPs "568 elected and 28 appointed by the President" will elect the Speaker of the parliament and his undersecretaries in the session.
    There have been a lot of speculations about who will become the House of Representatives speaker.
    Former interim President and current head of Supreme Constitution court Adly Mansour seemed to be the Presidency candidate but he refused because there would be a conflict of interest if he became the House of Representatives speaker.
    After all, how he would lead a discussion about a law he issued during his presidency !?
    Now as Mansour is not an option, another name is expected to be elected as the Parliament speaker and that name is Serry Siam.
    In another sign that the NDP and Mubarak regime are having a strong comeback. Siam used to be a legal advisor to Fathy Sorror, the longtime People's assembly speaker in Mubarak's rule for 13 years.
    He is believed to be among the legal team behind many infamous laws during the time of Mubarak.
    The 1941-born judge was appointed in the Parliament by President El-Sisi along with other 27 public figures from two weeks ago.
    He is a perfect choice if you think about when it comes to the so-called 30 June parliament and its unique members.
    The session is going to be headed by the eldest member of the Parliament MP Bahaa Abu Shouka of Al-Wafd Party.
    The famous criminal law lawyer was appointed in the parliament by President El-Sisi.
    I do not know if the TV is going to air the first session of the parliament on air just like it did during the 2011/2012 parliament or not. Some say that the TV won't do it for fear of scandals on air like in the 2012 parliament.
    We will see. It is just a matter of hours after all.
