MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's presidential airplane is flying six Mexican tourists who were wounded in an attack in Egypt back to their home country.

Mexico's Foreign Relations Department said Thursday that the victims were in stable condition and could be safely taken home for treatment.

Eight other Mexicans died Sunday when Egyptian forces hunting militants mistakenly attacked their convoy in the western desert.

Foreign Relations Secretary Claudia Ruiz Massieu said her office is trying to speed up the repatriation of the victims' bodies.

Four other people died in the attack on the convoy, which was led by Egyptian guides. Their nationalities were not confirmed.
