  • Hotel explosion at Israel-Egypt border

    Thu 7 October, 2004 22:01

    By Megan Goldin

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An explosion has torn through an Egyptian hotel used by many vacationing Israelis at the Red Sea border resort of Taba and Israeli witnesses reported seeing dozens of bodies from a possible bomb attack.

    Israeli media said the blast could have been caused by suicide bombers or a gas leak.

    "I heard a huge explosion. The wall near me collapsed and people began to run. There were many casualties ... The explosion was outside. When we went out we saw the shops and the internal wall of the hotel had collapsed.

    "Some people said it was a gas canister explosion and others said it was a terrorist attack. There are a lot of people (lying on the ground). There is a lot of blood, a lot of screaming," a witness called Yigal told Army radio on Thursday.

    A large number of people were wounded in the blast, the radio stations said, and many were being evacuated to a hospital in Eilat. Witnesses at the scene reported seeing part of the hotel on fire and said that a ceiling may have collapsed.

    Israeli security forces had warned Israeli travellers against visiting Egyptian resorts on the Red Sea, saying they might be targeted by Islamic militants.

    Thousands of Israelis have travelled to Egypt's Sinai peninsula, a popular holiday destination, during the Sukkot holiday.

    Witnesses said there were also many Russians at the hotel.

    "The hotel is on fire on the eastern side, the entry point, the lobby. People are trying to get out," a reporter for Israel Radio said from the scene in Taba.
    Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive, anyway.
