Egypt militants claim Sinai tourist bus attack

Published: 02.18.14, 09:01 / Israel News

A militant group based in the Sinai has claimed responsibility for a bomb attack on an Egyptian bus in the desert peninsula that killed three South Korean tourists and an Egyptian driver.


Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, Arabic for Champions of Jerusalem, said in a statement posted on militant websites late Monday that one of its "heroes" carried out Sunday's bombing in Taba as part of an "economic war" against army-backed government. Egyptian officials have called it a suicide attack, but the Ansar statement did not use any language that would suggest the perpetrator was dead. (AP)
