Security forces have set up roadblocks and checkpoints in Sinai following reports that two terrorists plan to bomb a tourist site in the region. Egyptian intelligence reported that the two entered Egypt from Sudan and were traveling in a truck packed with explosives. Police were concentrating added patrols on the road leading to El-Arish on the Mediterranean coast, about 30 miles from the Gaza Strip. From 2004 to 2006, groups affiliated with al-Qaida killed at least 125 people in attacks on the resorts of Sharm el-Sheikh, Taba and Dahab.
