Egyptian police found more than 1,200 kilograms (2,650 pounds) of TNT explosives Thursday buried in a northern desert on the Sinai Peninsula, a police officer said. Capt. Mohammed Badr of the northern Sinai police force said officials discovered the explosives using a tip from local Bedouins and were investigating who had buried them. The TNT was found in 27 plastic sacks near al-Raouda village, some 100 kilometers (62 miles) west of the border with the Gaza Strip, he added. Islamic militants have carried out three major bomb attacks in Sinai since October 2004. The blasts in the resorts of Sharm el-Sheik, Taba and Dahab killed 125 people. The government blamed the attacks on a local Islamic militant group, which appears to have been inspired by al-Qaida ideology.
