House of Egyptian serial killers Raya and Sakina becomes tourist attraction

The house of notorious Egyptian sisters, Raya and Sakina, whose prostitution business devolved into a series of crimes, including the killing of at least 17 women in the early 1900s, has become a tourist attraction.

The story of the two sisters, who were sentenced to death by hanging, was turned into a cautionary tale and became the subject of many Egyptian film and television series.
