LONDON (Reuters) - British tour operator Thomas Cook said on Wednesday it had not yet seen the full report from Egypt’s public prosecutor on the deaths of two British holidaymakers in the Red Sea resort of Hurghada last month.

Earlier on Wednesday the prosecutor said that e-coli bacteria was a factor in the deaths of John Cooper, 69, and his wife Susan, 63.

“We have not yet seen the full report and we will need time for our own experts to review it,” Thomas Cook said in a statement.

“We will continue to offer every support to their daughter Kelly and the rest of their family.”
