Egyptian officials: Bus blast victims being treated in Israel

Some of the dozens wounded in a blast that ripped through a tourist bus in Sinai near the border with Israel were being treated in Eilat, Egyptian security officials said.

 

The officials said that the blast killed four South Korean tourists and the Egyptian driver. Almost all 33 passengers on the bus were wounded, they said.

 

The officials said the source of the explosion was not clear, but they believe it was either a car bomb or a roadside bomb that was detonated by remote control. (Associated Press)
