A cross-border attack by terrorists in the Sinai that killed one Israeli contract worker Monday and led to Israeli and Hamas reprisal attacks is the latest fallout from the political earthquake in neighboring Egypt.

Three terrorists were reportedly responsible for the attack on a group of Israelis working on constructing a fence along the Israeli-Sinai border to keep out terrorists and African asylum seekers.
