Egyptian security forces said they arrested Saturday a top wanted militant in the Sinai Peninsula suspected of killing 25 off-duty policemen in one of the restive area's deadliest attacks.
The militant, Adel Mohammed, is suspected of leading an al-Qaida-linked group in an ambush where 25 off-duty policemen were lined up and shot last week, security officials said. According to one official, he has already been sentenced to death in absentia. Authorities also arrested another top figure from former President Mohammed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood group. (AP)
