Egypt: Bomber blown up while planting bomb

(Cairo) A spate of bomb attacks aimed at the country's train system which has seen numerous people killed these past few weeks. Yesterday (Sat, 22nd Nov), police were called to investigate the site of a bomb explosion which transpired on the Fayoum-Beni Suef line between Cairo and Aswan. There they found the body of a man who apparently had been killed by the bomb he was planting. A further search by the police found 3 other devices planted against the rail line.

Elsewhere, the Egyptian army killed 10 Islamic terrorists who felt the need to attack a military checkpoint in the violence-plagued Sinai Peninsula. Eighteen other militants were arrested during separate raids in north Sinai, adding that 12 vehicles and 41 motorcycles used by the militants were also destroyed during the operations.
