Letters from Egypt: Video of RPG Attack, at Least Four Responsible




One person has been detained while a video released shows at least three others involved in the rocket propelled grenade (RPG) attack on Nile TV satellites that occurred on October 7 around 4:30 am.

The video was posted by Egyptian blogger, Wael Abbas, who is accredited with helping to start the 2011 revolution. One of the perpetrators is filming the attack via his camera phone while at least three other individuals line up with one person carrying two RPGs and two other men standing as security with guns. Skip the video in its entirety because the only important part is between 1:13-2:07.

A security source gave me the information about one person being held for questioning. The video proves that “at least” four individuals are responsible (camera man, grenade launcher and two security) although there could have been more people involved (e.g. getaway driver).

Do NOT take a video committing a crime with your phone. I mean, have you never seen “World’s Dumbest Criminals”?

As a result of yesterday's attack coupled with attacks in Ismalia and Sinai, the Cairo airport has increased security declaring a State of Emergency.
