An Egyptian judge in Hurghada Court ordered Saturday an Italian tourist detained for a further 15 days pending investigations into his beating an Egyptian hotel manager to death in the Red Sea resort of Marsa Alam earlier this month.

The assault took place after the hotel manager warned the tourist, who was standing with his two children, to leave an off-limits construction area in the hotel, resulting in a heated argument, the tourism ministry said in a statement at the time of the incident.

The tourist confessed to assaulting the manager and was subsequently arrested.
