Egypt kills 40 in raids after tour bus bombed
Egyptian security forces killed at least 40 people suspected of being militants in North Sinai and Giza, officials said Saturday, a day after an explosion hit a tour bus, leaving four people dead and 10 wounded.
The Ministry of Interior did not explicitly link the killing of the suspected militants to the attack on the tour bus Friday. The security forces simultaneously raided two sites on the outskirts of Giza on Saturday, killing 30 militants there, as well as another refuge in Arish in North Sinai, killing 10 more in shootouts.
The tourist industry has been attacked several times in the past.
