Egyptian authorities arrest 200 people following Saturday attacks
Police officials in Egypt have arrested 200 people for questioning over two attacks on tourists in the capital during the weekend, according to security sources Sunday.
They gathered up the people in the district of Shubra Kheima, located north of Cairo, home to a man and two women who killed themselves and injured four foreigners, including an Israeli couple, in two separate attacks a day earlier, Reuters said.
According to the sources, the Egyptian authorities were examining whether there were additional members of a group which they claim was behind Saturday's attacks.
