Egyptian troops raid militant camp in Sinai
A military official says Egyptian troops gave raided a training camp for al-Qaeda-inspired militants in the northern Sinai peninsula, arresting two suspects.


The official says the troops acted on a tip from local residents. Wednesday's pre-dawn raid is part of a major operation launched earlier this week to rout out the militants in Sinai. The militants have taken advantage of the security vacuum following President Hosni Mubarak's ouster in February, launching brazen attacks on police patrols and a key pipeline that carries natural gas to Jordan and Israel.
