Egypt arrests 70 in hunt for attackers

Egyptian officials have detained more than 70 people in connection with yesterday's deadly bombings in Sharm el-Sheik.

The three blasts killed at least 88 people and authorities are struggling to identify all of the victims.

None of the more than 70 people detained for questioning have been accused of having any involvement in the attacks.

Local investigators are also examining the possibility that foreigners carried out the blasts.

Meantime, many tourists are rushing to leave the area. And some airlines have flown extra planes in to carry home tourists wanting to cut short holidays.
