israelinsider: security: Massive bomb attacks on Taba Hilton, Ras-a-Satan: 40 dead, 160 injured

"About 15,000 Israelis were in Sinai at the time of the blast according to travel companies. The attack happened at the end of a week-long Jewish holiday, and at the beginning on an Egyptian holiday celebrating the beginning of the 1973 war with Israel, which Egypt considers a victory.

Security officials say that the Egyptians initially did not allow Israeli rescue forces to enter the country to help the wounded and recover people from under the hotel's rubble. But later on units of Magen David Adom were seen helping victims at the Taba."
