A run-down of terrorism in Egypt

October 08, 2013/

Nour Youssef has been trying to compile a comprehensive list of terrorist attacks reported in the Egyptian press. The problem, as she notes, is that “they keep publishing the same story under different titles, sometimes lumping a couple incidents together, throwing in an update (without saying it is an update), picking up a detail and sensationalizing it — or all of the above. The result is a flood of bad news that overwhelms readers.” After the jump, our list of reported attacks, in rough chronological order — and some jihadist videos set to really annoying music.


  • In Arish, masked men fired at the State Radio’s building and a bomb caused serious damage to a mosque in al-Masoura Square. Aug. 22
  • On the 26th of August, there was 9 failed terrorist attacks in one day. They arrested suspects, half of them were by Palestinians.
