Blast in Egypt

You may have heard about the bombings on Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh yesterday. At least 80 people have died, 200 injured and Egypt's tourism industry strongly harmed.

I have no love for the Egyptian government. Its repressive, oppressive and vindictive. It tortures anyone who doesn't say what they want them to say and has a history of human rights violations against men, women and children. Oh and its a U.S. ally.

However, regardless of my views on the government, this bombing is barbaric and wrong and must be condemned. So I am condemning it.

Here are two links. One if from the Washington Post and the other is from the Khaleej Times. Two prespectives, remarkably similar.
