At least 23 persons were killed and 62 wounded in three almost simultaneous explosions Monday night rocked the Egyptian resort city of Dahab, 200 miles southeast of Cairo in the Sinai peninsula, at the height of the tourist season on 24th April night. Israel’s Ambassador to Egypt said that the blasts “were set off by pre-set time bombs and not by car bombs or suicide terrorists.” It was a national holiday in Egypt, and the resorts were packed. Last year on July 23, terrorists attacked the resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh. On July 23 in 2004, terrorists too had attacked tourist resort, killing 34 people. The earlier two Sharm el-Sheikh attacks were on Egyptian holidays — October 6 and July 23. “Monday’s explosions coincided with the ancient spring festival of Shamm el-Nessim, when Egyptians head out of town. Tourism is the main source of revenue for Egypt. The terrorists network seems to bent upon hurting the economic backbone of Egypt which is an ally of the US in the war on terrorism.
