Three South Korean tourists and a bus driver were killed in an act of terrorism when a bomb destroyed a tourist bus in Egypt near the Israeli border. Fourteen other tourists were injured by the blast. It is not clear whether the explosion was caused by a car or roadside bomb.
Although no one has claimed responsibility, Egyptian authorities believe the al Qaeda-inspired Ansar Bayt Al-Maqdis is responsible for the attack. Since the military ousted President Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood from power last July, Ansar Bayt Al-Maqdis has regularly attacked Egyptian security forces. But now it appears they want the world to pay attention and have begun to attack tourists.
