|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Luxor massacre article.
This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject.
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
|A fact from this article was featured on Wikipedia's Main Page in the On this day... section on November 17, 2007, November 17, 2008, November 17, 2009, and November 17, 2013.|
Why is the title so specific? Was there another massacre during another month of 1997?
There is a link to a BBC article contending that Osama Bin Laden provided funding for this attack. Was this ever "proven"? Should this be mentioned in the article?
I think the "WikiProject Terrorism" tag looks obsolete with the logo of a German terrorist outfit that was most active decades ago. Most terrorism today is from Islamic origin. Xufanc (talk) 00:08, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
I would agree about the obsolescence of the tag, but not about the origin of most terrorism. Only one group has ever been convicted of international terrorism by the International Court of Justice (see Nicaragua v. United States). I would use their symbol.
The article "Terrorism in Egypt" said 62, this article said 63. This article said 59 tourists, where every new source cited said 58. In the list of nationalities, the total numbers added to 60, even. I watched the Phil Day documentary on this, made in 2002 (long enough to get an accurate count) and they mentioned the same list, except the Wikipedia list added "one French . . . and a dual-national Bulgarian/British". Since the discrepancy was 2, this seemed appropriate to remove. If anyone can provide a source to the contrary, they can go back.--Vox Rationis (Talk | contribs) 04:38, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
Fate of the gunmen
After the suicide paragraph, the next section contradicts that and says they were killed by law enforcement, and sources an article that doesn't even say anything about that law-enforcement-killing thing so I removed it. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:55, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
