Two Britons were being treated in hospital in Cairo last night for injuries suffered in the Dahab bombings.

Henry Luce, 42, a cousin of Lord Luce - who as the Lord Chamberlain is the head of the Queen's household - was said to be in a stable condition.

Buckingham Palace said Lord Luce had been in touch with the emergency services and with the family of his cousin, who lives at Cadhay in Devon. Mr Luce's wife was unhurt in the bombing.

The second injured Briton was named as Sam Still, 75.

The death toll included 12 Egyptians and a German child aged 10.

The Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, said: "I utterly condemn these appalling bombings in Dahab, which have been targeted at a popular holiday resort and on an Egyptian public holiday. Once again, terrorists have demonstrated their callous disregard for human life."
