A British tourist was stabbed to death Sunday morning in the resort town of Ayia Napa in Cyprus, The Independent reported.
George Low, 22, of Dartford, was walking down a busy street when he was stabbed in the neck, the Independent said.
Another 22-year-old British man was stabbed four times in the back during the attack, the newspaper said. His injures were not life-threatening.
The victims were stabbed by two men after a shoving match, police told the Independent.
Police are still searching for the suspects, district assistant police chief Georgios Economou told the newspaper. They do not suspect terrorism.
A Foreign Office spokesman told the Independent that the office is providing support to Low’s family and will communicate with local authorities in the investigation.
A GoFundMe page has been started in Low’s memory.
“We lost a true legend,” the page reads. “Let’s get him home and give him the send-off he deserves!”
According to the GoFundMe page on Sunday afternoon, it had raised £6,672, or $8,623.89, in five hours.
