S. Korean Christians killed by Islamic terrorists in the Sinai


S. Korean Christians killed by Islamic terrorists in the Sinai

A bus carrying South Korean Christians who were spending their life's savings to visit Biblical sites in Egypt was blown up by Islamic terrorists, killing three tourists, the bus driver and injuring at least 14 others on the bus.

The Egyptian police believe the terrorist group led by the Al Qaida-inspired Ansar Bayt Al-Maqdis was responsible for the attack.

The group was pro-Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood whose ouster from Egyptian politics by the military led them to terrorist attacks that kill innocent foreigners, especially Christians, in a desperate move to gain international attention.

The Muslim Brotherhood has been accused of being associated with similar terrorist groups, especially the perpetrators of the 1997 Luxor Massacre in which 62 people, all but four of them foreign tourists, were killed.

During his brief presidency, Morsi appointed one of the Luxor Massacre associates to a governorship, causing widespread condemnation.

The South Koreans on the bus were all devout Christians belonging to the same church. They were targeted because they visited the St. Catherine's Monastery in the Sinai Peninsula.
