Korean Victims of Terror Bombing Head Home

The victims of the terror bombing in Taba, Egypt are heading back to Korea Wednesday. An official at the Korean Embassy in Egypt said Tuesday most of the 15 victims hospitalized in Taba will board a plane home, excluding two or three who suffered heavy injuries.

Fifteen other members of the tour group who escaped unscathed were resting in the Israeli capital of Tel Aviv. They hoped to return to Korea on Monday but could not find flights.

Meanwhile, forensic experts in Egypt announced the results of their autopsy on the terrorist and said he had wrapped 5-10 kg of explosives around his waist.
