LANDSTUHL, Germany — Four U.S. civilians wounded earlier this week during bomb blasts in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Dahab have arrived at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center for treatment.

The Americans arrived at the largest U.S. hospital outside the United States on Friday afternoon. Three were admitted as inpatients, and one was treated as an outpatient, said Marie Shaw, spokeswoman for the hospital.

None of the patients had to be treated in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

Three terrorist bombs hit Dahab on Monday at the height of the tourist season, killing at least 23 people and wounding more than 60. The bombing was the third terror strike on a Sinai resort in less than two years.

The attackers struck a day after al-Qaida terrorist Osama bin Laden issued a taped warning that ordinary Western citizens had become legitimate targets of his terrorist organization because of their support of governments.
