Sniper kills Egyptian soldier in Sinai Peninsula

A sniper shot dead an Egyptian soldier in the Sinai Peninsula, security sources said on Sunday, a region where al-Qaeda-linked fighters have stepped up attacks on security forces since the army deposed elected Islamist president Mohamed Mursi on July 3.


The soldier was killed late on Saturday while on guard at a security checkpoint in the town of al Qusayma, the sources said. (Reuters)
