Egyptian Police Hunt Bombing Suspects in Sinai

  • VOA News

Egyptian police exchanged gunfire Monday with Bedouin tribesmen during the search for Pakistani men in connection with Saturday's bombings that killed nearly 90 people in Sharm el-Sheikh.

Government officials say the Bedouin were thought to be hiding the wanted men in the mountains of Sinai's interior.

Earlier Monday, police distributed photographs of five Pakistani men who arrived in Sharm el-Sheikh earlier this month and have since disappeared, leaving their passports at a hotel. Police have not accused the Pakistani's of any wrongdoing, saying they are investigating all possible avenues.

In Washington, President and Mrs. Bush visited the Egyptian embassy to express their condolences. The president said the United States is "determined to stand with the people of Egypt to reject this kind of violence."
