Egypt Questions Suspects in Red Sea Resort Bombings - 2004-10-10

Egyptian investigators have begun questioning several suspects in the Red Sea resort bombings.

News agencies quoted unnamed Egyptian security sources as saying more than a dozen Sinai Desert Bedouin were being questioned about smuggling explosives into the resort areas.

Meanwhile, Egyptian and Israeli rescue teams said they expect to conclude their search for bodies Sunday.

Egyptian officials said 34 people were killed and more than 100 injured when three separate bombs exploded at hotels in the Taba and Ras Shitan areas Thursday, the worst terror incident in Egypt in seven years. The identified victims include Egyptians and Israeli tourists.

Israel has blamed al-Qaida for the attacks. Egypt has not officially said who it believes is responsible.
