Cairo Bombing

Dale Gavlak reports from Cairo, where gunmen today opened fire on a tour bus outside the city's popular Egyptian Museum, then set it on fire with Molotov cocktails. The Egyptian Interior Ministry says ten people were killed, at least six of them Germans. The attack came just three days after Egypt sentenced four Muslim extremists to death for subversion, but so far no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
