Police say a Bedouin man shot and killed a French tourist Saturday in the Sinai, in an apparent act of retribution after clashes with police.
Alexander Crister, 42, suffered multiple gunshot wounds after a man, distraught over the death of his relative in an anti-drugs raid, opened fire at random toward tourists, police say.
Yousef Abu Khashm died and three policemen sustained injuries in a series of raids on areas suspected to be linked with the narcotics trade in Hay Bader, Toshky and al-Tour, the police said earlier.
In the course of these raids, three police officers were injured in an industrial area in al-Tour. They were identified as Mohammad Basioni, 30, Ahmad Hassan, 23, and Saad Muhammad.
An unspecified number of suspects were arrested in the raids.
