Terrorist Attack in Egypt

There’s been another terrorist bombing. This time the target was a Sinai Peninsula resort. I expect the numbers could climb, but so far it is being reported that 59 are dead and 116 are wounded. Egypt’s interior minister said the bombing could be linked to a similar attack last October, a string of three hotel bombings that killed 34 people, many of them Israelis. According to the AP, the victims of today’s bombing "included people from Britain, Russia, the Netherlands, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Egypt."
