A young Egyptian man committed suicide on Sunday by jumping off the pyramid of Khafre in the Giza Plateau, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.
According to preliminary investigations, the young man was attending a concert held at the Giza Plateau on Saturday evening when he climbed the second-largest of the Giza pyramids.
Police were called after security guards noticed the man climbing the 136-metre-tall pyramid, which ended in a 12-hour standoff with the police attempting to talk the man down.
The man jumped to his death from a height of 100 metres.
The pyramid of Khafre served as the tomb of Fourth Dynasty pharaoh Khafre, who ruled circa 2570 BC.
In March 2018, a man tried to commit suicide by jumping off the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Egypt has strict rules against scaling pyramids, which is punishable by up to three years in prison.
