An Egyptian Interior Ministry source said, Monday, that Sunday afternoon's bombing of a bus at the Taba border crossing with Israel was the work of a suicide bomber. Four Korean tourists were killed and 15 were wounded in the blast.

Initial findings of an investigation into the incident indicate the unidentified terrorist approached the bus and blew himself up on the front steps to the vehicle, opposite the driver's seat, while the driver was in the crossing's offices taking care of documents. The Ansar Beit Al-Makdis jihadist group said it was behind the attack.
