CAIRO, Apr 19 (Reuters) The Egyptian government today said it had broken up a group of at least 22 militant Islamists planning bomb attacks on tourist targets, a gas pipeline near Cairo and Muslim and Christian religious leaders.

The Interior Ministry said in a statement the underground organisation called itself the Victorious Group and had members in suburbs northeast and south of the capital. ''Information, documents and interviews ... confirmed that they were studying carrying out terrorist operations against tourist targets, the gas pipeline on the Greater Cairo ring road and some sensitive sites through bombings,'' it said.
