Breaking News- Three blasts have gone off in the Egyptian resort town on Dahab and reports indicate that the casualty numbers are high.
Of note: Dahab is packed with tourists this week who are celebrating the Coptic Easter holiday. The Copts have been frequent targets of Islamist attacks and I would suspect they were the main targets here. No group has yet claimed responsibility, but it is likely that this was an Egyptian based group, possibly affiliated with al-Qaeda.
The last attack of this type targeted Israeli tourists, but Israelis were not likely the main target this time, as few Israelis are vacationing in Egypt at this time (Israelis were on vacation last week for the Passover holiday).
