In Egypt, an Islamist militant group has warned all tourists to leave the country or face possible attacks. The group claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in the Sinai Peninsula last Sunday (February 16) that killed two South Korean Christian tourists and an Egyptian. The South Korean church group was on a tour of religious sites. Egypt has seen a surge in militant violence since the ouster of former president Mohammed Morsi last year.
