Report: 2 Swiss found dead in Egyptian resort

CAIRO (AP) — Authorities have discovered the bodies of a Swiss couple in a villa in a Red Sea resort city in Egypt, the country’s state television website reported Thursday. It says investigators suspect the villa guard.

The website initially reported that they were Swedish.

The Thursday report said the couple was found in Hurghada a week after they disappeared. It said the guard allegedly wanted to take over the villa, without explaining further. Security officials could not be reached and embassies were closed.

Crime in Egypt surged after the country’s 2011 uprising, as the police force collapsed and the country became awash with weapons.
