Two US embassy staff wounded in Taba blast, Americans warned to avoid Sinai

Two American employees of the US embassy in Israel were among the more than 100 people injured in a deadly bomb attack on a hotel in the Egyptian resort of Taba, the State Department said, as it warned US citizens to avoid the eastern coast of the Sinai Peninsula. The pair, who were staying at the Hilton Hotel in Taba with their families when an apparent car bomb exploded, killing at least 28 people, most of them Israelis, were not seriously injured, spokesman Richard Boucher said, declining to offer additional details. “They happened to be at that hotel yesterday,” he told reporters. “None of them were injured critically, and the employees and their families have returned to Israel.” Group Profile
