USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE - From staff and wire re­ports

A road­side bomb hit a tourist bus Fri­day near the Giza Pyra­mids, killing two Viet­namese tourists and wound­ing 12 oth­ers, Egypt’s In­te­rior Min­istry said.

It said the bus was trav­el­ing in the Mar­i­outiyah area near the pyra­mids when the crude road­side bomb, con­cealed by a wall, went off. The wounded in­cluded 10 Viet­namese tourists. The other two wounded were the Egyp­tian bus driver and the guide.

Egypt has bat­tled Is­lamic mil­i­tants for years in the Si­nai Penin­sula.

How­ever, this is the first at­tack to tar­get for­eign tourists in al­most two years.
