I see that the cowards are sticking with attacking weak objects. Nothing says "My side is right" like attacking restaurants, hotels, and markets. No doubt this latest attack is an example of how great their cause is.

One blast hit a hotel, a second a restaurant and the third explosion rocked the resort town's market area.

following the first figures, more than 100 people got killed .
a bomb exploded in a hotel and another one on a trade market. The last one probably in a restaurant but could not yet be confirmed.

Seems as though this has been increasing in that area tom...

There have been a string of attacks in Egypt's Sinai peninsula over 18 months. They included al-Qaida-style bombings in the resorts of Taba and Ras #an in October 2004, killing 34 people, and in the resort of Sharm el-Sheik in July 2005, killing 63.

Groups claiming links to al-Qaida took responsibility for those attacks. Egyptian authorities say new Islamic militant groups have arisen in the peninsula, but they are still trying to determine if they have any real connection to al-Qaida or other international terrorists.

100? That's horrible, I do hope it turns out to be less than that.

These terrorists show no mercy, no remorse, that's what makes them so deadly. They're quite happy to blow up a hotel over a military target.

Scum.

Its horrible and sad.

I too wonder WHO is behind this. I could have predicted all hell is about to break loose.

Hmm didn't Iran send spies or agents to carry out attack against Israel not to long ago?
