Israel: Al Qaeda Likely Behind Sinai Attacks

Read the whole story here

TABA, Egypt — Investigators searched for proof Friday that three homicide car bomb attacks targeting Red Sea resorts filled with Israeli tourists were carried out by Al Qaeda, as rescuers pulled bodies from the twisted wreckage of a five-star hotel and casino.

Israeli officials, who were leading the rescue effort, said the death toll was 29 in Thursday's bombings in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula. Egyptian officials could confirm only 24 dead. More than 100 people were injured, with reports as high as 160.

Using everything from jackhammers and drills to dogs and bare hands, rescuers searched the wreckage of the Taba Hilton, site of the first and by far the deadliest of the bombings. But after turning on flood lamps as darkness fell on Friday, they did not expect to find many more bodies underneath the piles of concrete and metal, and appeared to be losing hope of finding survivors.

The number of missing was unclear. Israeli authorities had a list of about 100 people who had not yet checked in, said Maj. Gen. Yair Naveh, head of the Israeli Home Front Command.

So it looks like it was Al Queda...
