Egyptian police find suitcase bomb

From Daily News Egypt:
AL-ARISH: An Egyptian security official says a booby trapped suitcase carrying 25 kilograms of explosives was defused near the Egyptian border with Israel and Gaza.

Police often find weapons caches destined for the Gaza Strip, but the official said finding an "advanced" bomb is rare.

The official said the bomb is being inspected to determine who was behind it and whether it was heading to Israel.

Al Arish is where yesterday's fuel truck explosion was as well.

25 kilos is quite a large bomb, and it indicates that Hamas is trying hard to come up with new and innovative ways to murder Jews.
