Egyptian Cleric Condemns Terrorist Bombings

Egypt's top cleric has angrily condemned those responsible for last week's terrorist bombings in Sharm el-Sheikh.

Speaking in that Red Sea resort town, the grand imam of the Al-Azhar mosque, Mohammed Sayyed Tantawi, rejected terrorist attacks in the name of Islam. He said the bombers will be cursed by God.

Egyptian officials say 64 people died in the blasts, but local doctors say the death toll is nearly 90.

The grand imam called on Egyptians to help find those responsible for the attacks.

Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak has called for an Arab summit next month in Sharm el-Sheikh to discuss terrorism and other concerns.
