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.
