Five killed in bombing of tourist bus

(JNS.org) At least five people were killed and 14 were injured in an explosion on a tour bus at the Taba border crossing between Israel and Egypt on Sunday. Four Korean tourists and their Egyptian driver were killed on a bus that arrived in Taba after touring the St. Catherine’s Greek Orthodox monastery in the central Sinai Peninsula, the Egyptian Interior Ministry said. According to Arabic-language media reports, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis – an al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group that recently fired rockets at Eilat – claimed responsibility for the bus attack.
