Russian Tourist 'Raped In Sharm El-Sheikh'
Police have arrested a minibus driver for allegedly raping a Russian tourist in the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh.
The suspect was driving the woman and her husband back to their hotel after a night-out when he pretended the vehicle had broken down, officers said.
He then tricked the Russian man into getting out of the minibus before speeding off with his wife.
The 23-year-old suspect attacked the woman, 36, and left her on the side of the road, according to Egyptian news website Ahram Online.
In March, a British businesswoman was allegedly raped in a five-star hotel in the same resort.
The woman, aged in her 40s, said she was sexually assaulted by a security guard who escorted her to her room.
The Egyptian government recently passed a law imposing harsher penalties for sex attacks.
President Abdel Fattah al Sisi vowed to crack down on such crimes, after footage appeared in the world's media of men sexually assaulting a woman during a rally in Cairo's Tahrir Square.
Thirteen men are to stand trial over the attack.
