Another two suicide bombings occurred today in Egypt's northern Sinai Peninsula. This comes as another blow, which Egypt had just had a triple suicide bombing this Monday.The bombers were suspected to be targeting International Peacekeepers and Police. It also states that no al-qaeda member has praised such attacks suggesting that it may not be Al-qaeda behind such recent bombings.

CAIRO, Egypt - Two suicide bombers detonated explosives in Egypt's northern Sinai Peninsula on Wednesday, killing only themselves, but unsettling a country still recovering from triple blasts Monday that killed 24 and wounded as many as 160 in a tourist resort on Sinai's Red Sea coast.

Officials said the bombers apparently were targeting international peacekeepers in one bombing and Egyptian police in the other near the town of El-Arish. Links to Monday's bombings were unclear, however, and both officials and independent analysts said they couldn't comment on a possible tie until investigators complete their work.

Egyptian officials have long blamed Sinai unrest on local Bedouin tribes while insisting that the Bedouins have no ties to terrorist groups such as al-Qaida. In the aftermath of a bombing at the resort city of Taba in 2004, Egyptian security forces arrested 2,400 Bedouins in connection with the explosion. As many as 80 local Bedouins were arrested after Monday's bombings in the town of Dahab.

Well its another attack on Egypt. Now I'm not too up to date on this situation so why exactly are they getting attacked this week? Has there been any major moves by Egypt recently to anger any terrorist group or any group in general? Anybody have any info on why these bombings are occurring?

EDIT:
Egypt minister: Recent attacks linked


The recent attacks are connected to the previous bombing information indicates. The attack from today, Monday, and 2004 are all connected evidence suggests said Habib el-Adly.
