CAIRO (Reuter) - Egypt's main Muslim militant group, El-Gama'a el-Islamiya, denied yesterday that it was behind a bomb explosion in a crowded coffee shop which killed four people and injured 16. The group has carried out a series of attacks on foreign tourists in the past five months, but the attack was the most serious in Cairo for many years. Doctors at Kasr al-Aini hospital said those killed were a Turk, a Swede and two Egyptians.
