PRAGUE — The Foreign Ministry says a Czech woman who was injured in a knife attack at a hotel in the popular Egyptian Red Sea resort of Hurghada earlier in July is on the brink of death and only life support is keeping her alive.

Citing a Czech doctor who joined the Egyptian medical staff in a Cairo hospital, the ministry said it’s practically impossible to expect her condition to improve.

In the July 14 attack, an Egyptian university graduate first stabbed two German women to death and later attacked and wounded four female tourists who, according to local media reports, included two Armenians, one Ukrainian and the Czech.

The woman was hospitalized with back and leg injuries after the attack.

The ministry announced on Monday that her condition significantly worsened.
