NPR's Noah Adams talks to NPR's Julie McCarthy, reporting from Eilat, Israel on the Israeli-Egyptian border, about bombings at two Egyptian resorts Thursday evening. The blasts killed more than 27 people and wounded at least 120 others — mostly Israeli tourists taking advantage of the religious holiday to visit the popular resorts, just across the Israeli border.
