Al-Qaeda 'behind Egypt bombings'

Israeli officials say they suspect al-Qaeda involvement in bomb blasts at Egyptian resorts popular with Israelis, in which at least 28 people died. The biggest of the three attacks, at the Hilton hotel in Taba, on Egypt’s border with Israel, killed 26 people. The others hit a backpacker camping area near the resort of Nuweiba, 60km (38 miles) further south, killing two. Rescuers are searching the rubble of the Hilton hotel, but say there is little hope of finding more survivors. Israeli officials said the Taba attack was caused by a car bomb, which exploded after the vehicle rammed the hotel, and a suicide bomber who detonated a separate bomb. More than 100 people are reported to have been injured. Group Profile
