Terror threat in Sinai

Sunday, October 02, 2005 | 
Israel has warned its citizens not to travel to Egypt's Red Sea Coast in the Sinai Peninsula because of a terror threat. “Israel is bothered by various information that speaks specifically about al-Qaeda activities or other terrorist cells that operate in Sinai,” said Cabinet Minister Yitzhak Herzog. “I believe it's the responsibility of the Egyptian government not to tolerate any such activity and to make sure there's safety…for Israeli citizens.” Thousands of Israelis plan to spend the Jewish holidays this month in Sinai, which has already been hit by major bombings. Terrorists killed 90 people last July in bombings at the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh, and a year ago, the Taba hotel on the Israeli border was blown up along with two other resorts. More than 30 people were killed, including 13 Israelis.
