      Egypt Says 4 Dead in Taba Bus Bombing

      Egyptian Health ministry spokesman Ahmed Kamel told Agence France Presse, Sunday, that at least four people were killed and 13 were injured, Sunday afternoon, when a bomb tore through a bus carrying South Korean tourists on the Egyptian side of the Taba border crossing with Israel, just south of the Red Sea port of Eilat. The interior ministry said bomb went off in the front section of bus, killing the driver.

      Earlier it was reported that three tourists were killed. No one immediately claimed to have carried out the attack, the first targeting tourists since former president Mohammed Morsi was deposed.
