The Mideast Press came out and condemned the terrorist bombings on Saturday:

Newspapers across the Middle East have denounced Saturday’s bomb attacks in Egypt’s Sharm al-Sheikh resort.

“We are the victims – regardless of whether the people killed are Arab, Muslim or Western Christian, or whether they are living with us in our country or we with them in their countries.” said the Kuwaiti paper.

More Tourists join the Egyptian Protest

Egyptians are holding over 70 individuals for questioning about the largest terrorist attack in Egyptian history:

Egyptian police searched for clues Sunday and struggled to identify bodies from the 88 people killed in three bomb blasts that rocked this Red Sea resort, sending foreign tourists scrambling to catch flights home.

More than 70 people have been detained in Sharm el-Sheik and elsewhere on the Sinai Peninsula (search) for questioning over the bombings early Saturday. But none has been accused of involvement in Egypt’s deadliest-ever terror attack, said security officials, who declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the inquiry.

Update: Instapundit has been tracking another Egyptian protest organized by blogger Karim Elsahy.
