In Egypt this time.
Forty-nine people have been killed and 136 wounded in two car bombs and another explosion in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, the governor says. [SNIP]What was I saying again?
The casualties included people from Britain, the Netherlands, Qatar, Kuwait and Egypt, but police do not yet have a complete breakdown of the nationalities of the dead and wounded.
A rescue official said 17 of the dead had been burnt beyond recognition by the explosions.
According to police sources and witnesses, one of the deadliest bombs went off in a car park between the Ghazala and Moevenpick hotels in Sharm el-Sheikh's Naama Bay area. [SNIP]
The attacks came on the 53rd anniversary of the 1952 revolution and scores of Egyptians were also on an extended holiday weekend in Sharm el-Sheikh and other resorts.
According to police sources, there were up to seven almost simultaneous blasts, mainly in Sharm el-Sheikh's old market area.

This recent tangent of attacks in [M]uslim countries leads me to wonder if Islamic terrorists will be the ones to nuke Mecca, while the West is still pondering the ethics of even mentioning it.UPDATE: Not in their name: Muslims protest against terror.
