News reports are coming in: An explosion rocked the AlHussein touristy area in Cairo. An explosive device went off ,
injured at least 18 people, and killed at least 4, two of which are foreigners, and one of which is french injured 21 people and killed one french woman. There are reports that a second, smaller bomb went off an hour later, and another bomb that was found by the police and was getting dismantled as we speak.
The timing of this highly unfortunate and suspect: the government is planning to vote on the Terrorism law- which is the emergency law, but rather permanent- on sunday, and nothing better to justify the passing of such a publically despised law than to have a nice explosion a few days before its passing.Also, a rather comical NDP MP just went on TV and accused the Taliban and Iranof being behind it. The government will of course use this to stick broomsticks up our asses for a long time to come. Fun times lie ahead, people. Fun times!
Update: There are reports that hand grenades were used. No one knows anything for sure.
Update: And just to calm the Persian haters..the shia wouldn;t do it, not next to alhussein mosque. Hell, those people wouldn;t even insult the late King of Jordan on their television because of his name, u think they would bomb the mosque that supposidly houses his deadbody? U kidding me?
