“Just six days after the Riyadh [Saudi Arabia] bombing, on November 19, 1995, the Egyptian embassy in Pakistan was bombed, killing 16 people and wounding 60. …A year earlier, Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto had extradited Ramzi Yousef, a conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and more than a dozen Egyptian militants, to the United States and Egypt respectively. Authorities believe that Bhutto’s campaign against terrorism was the motive behind the bombing.”
