Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak has vowed to toughen the battle against terrorists, following bomb attacks that killed 88 people in a Red Sea resort.
Mr. Mubarak visited Sharm el-Sheikh on Saturday, just hours after three explosions tore through a luxury hotel, parking lot and market area.
Officials say at least two suicide car bombers smashed into the hotel in Ghazala Gardens, causing the building to collapse.
Emergency crews said they do not expect to find any more survivors, and they have called in heavy machines to begin clearing rubble.
Officials say eight foreigners were among those killed in the attacks, which also injured more than 100 people.
Security forces arrested some two dozen people in the area, but it was not clear if they were suspected of taking part in the blasts.
Egypt's interior minister, Habib al-Adli says the blasts may be tied to October bombings that killed 34 people in the Sinai resort of Taba.
