Since the army toppled Egypt's first freely-elected president, Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, in July, Islamist militants have stepped up attacks on security forces, killing hundreds. An Islamist insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula which has defied an army crackdown has spread to Cairo and other cities as the country prepares for presidential elections next month. (Reuters)
