Dozens die in Egypt blasts

It is feared that as many as 30 people could have lost their lives in the three blasts that ripped through the Egyptian resort town of Dahab. Dozens more were wounded. The BBC reports the explosions occurred in a bustling area popular with tourists during the early evening when many people were out in cafes and restaurants. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak called the explosions a wicked terrorist act while US President George W Bush said the attack was heinous. The Hamas-led Palestinian government and Israel also strongly condemned the bombing. Israel has offered to send emergency teams to the scene.
