Catholic World News - February 18, 2014
A suicide bomber attacked a bus of South Korean Christians traveling from St. Catherine’s Monastery to Israel, killing three and wounding two dozen.
Ansar Bait al-Maqdis, a Salafist jihadist group active in the Sinai Peninsula, claimed responsibility for the attack, according to a Reuters report.
Blessed John Paul II made a pilgrimage to St. Catherine’s Monastery, which is located at Mount Sinai, during the great jubilee of the year 2000.
