Muslim Brotherhood Affiliate Suspected in Tourist Bus Bombing

Egyptian officials suspect a violent branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, called the Hasm Movement, is responsible for a Dec. 28 terrorist attack that killed three Vietnamese tourists and an Egyptian tour guide.

Authorities believe that the attack on a tourist bus near the Giza pyramids was in retaliation for a preemptive strike Egyptian security forces carried out eight days earlier that killed eight Hasm militants and saw four others arrested.

The raid on the Hasm hideouts aimed to thwart planned Christmas and New Year’s attacks. Officials found stashed assault weapons, remote-controlled planes, a drone chassis and materials used to make improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that have been used in attacks similar to the tourist bus bombing.
