Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter said Monday afternoon that the bomber who killed three Eilat residents in a suicide attack on Monday morning had infiltrated Israel from Egypt, echoing the conclusion of all of the Israeli intelligence agencies. Earlier, Egypt had said that there was "no way" that the bomber or his explosives could have been smuggled through their country. The Islamic Jihad, one of the three groups claiming responsibility for the attack, said that the bomber, a 21-year-old Gaza resident, had entered Israel from Jordan.
