Egyptian investigators said they were trying to determine whether foreigners carried out the string of blasts that leveled the reception area of a luxury tourist hotel and ripped apart a coffee- house crowded with Egyptians at a.m. Saturday. No direct link was seen between the devastating blasts in Sharm and the two rounds of explosions that recently hit London's subway and buses, but together the attacks reinforced a global fear that militants can strike anywhere. The resort at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula has long felt like an oasis of safety, known equally for partying, scuba diving and high-level political sum- ISRAEUS, PAGE A-14 INSIDE It was a beautiful night for dancing.

George Pataki gets any private jobs that might conflict with his public job? Last year, a student group at the University of Florida paid him to speak. So did a state public utility in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's state of California. Pataki disclosed these personal details as well as his children's jobs, his wife's consult- ing contracts and their Honda and New York real estate investments in a document New York state law requires him to file every year. But if you want to keep tabs on the Pataki family ethics, you'd better take the day off from work, gas up the car and sharpen your pencil. Unlike every other state ethics commission in the United States, the New York State Ethics Commission doesn't make copies.
