Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

A blast outside a multinational air base in Sinai. No news of casualties yet.
Update: Well, according to Al-Jazeera web site, 2 of the multinational forces (IFOR) were injured.
Update 2: The injured soldiers are a Norwegian, a New Zelandian, and two Egyptian officers. Link
Update 3: According to Al-Jazeera TV, apparently another bomb exploded in Belbayes, Sharkiya. It apperared to have targeted a police car. I don't know why but I get the feeling that this will be a very long day!
Update 4: This is confirmed by Al-Jazeera: North Sinai witnessed TWO explositions; one at the IFOR base, and the other at Moderayet El-Amn (Security Bureau) at Ariesh.
Update 5: Link
Update 6: It appears that the explosion in Sharkia targeted a police checkpoint kameen
Update 7:The attacks are being described by Reuters as "abortive". Wonder what were the real targets?! They're also adding that nobody was hurt at all. This conflicts with earlier reports, but we'll stay tuned.
Update 8: The interior minister is denying the Sharkia bomb completly. So, I guess it was just another Jazeera hoax!
Update 9: The interior minister is saying that Bedouins are responsible for Dahab attacks. And that those who planned today explosions are related to Dahab ones.
I guess that he really jumped the gun in accusing Bedouins. Let's just hope that they are treated better than last time. Or, else...

Moved on!


The Norwegian was not injured. I don't know about the New Zeelander though.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. It has not yet reached the west coast. That is one of the reasons I care more for the net than the loud mouths.

I would also like to thank you for the ZoomCloud. If you only knew how many days and even weeks I have spent trying to put in categories! Have a good day, and stay safe.
