The Myanmar Times - - World -

Four Egyp­tian sol­diers were killed in the Si­nai Penin­sula, where the lo­cal branch of the Is­lamic State group reg­u­larly at­tacks se­cu­rity forces, the army said. The troops were killed dur­ing op­er­a­tions around El-Ar­ish in north­ern Si­nai prov­ince, close to the bor­der with the Gaza Strip. Six ji­hadists were killed dur­ing the same op­er­a­tion and oth­ers were arrested. Also in El-Ar­ish, three po­lice­men and three civil­ians were wounded when a sui­cide bomber det­o­nated a car bomb near a se­cu­rity con­voy.
