Egypt army kills 16 suspected militants in Sinai
Egypt's military spokesman says airstrikes in the northern Sinai Peninsula have killed 16 militants with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the ousted president's Islamist group.

 

Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said on Saturday the airstrikes targeted hideouts of "terrorist, extremely dangerous takfiri" militants late Friday in the eastern border town of Sheikh Zuweyid. Takfiri is an Arabic term referring to Islamic radicals. (AP)
