The Bradenton Herald (Sunday) - - Nation & World - — NEW YORK TIMES

Egyp­tian se­cu­rity forces killed at least 40 peo­ple sus­pected of be­ing militants in North Sinai and Giza, of­fi­cials said Sat­ur­day, a day af­ter an ex­plo­sion hit a tour bus, leav­ing four peo­ple dead and 10 wounded.

The Min­istry of In­te­rior did not ex­plic­itly link the killing of the sus­pected militants to the at­tack on the tour bus Fri­day. The se­cu­rity forces si­mul­ta­ne­ously raided two sites on the out­skirts of Giza on Sat­ur­day, killing 30 militants there, as well as an­other refuge in Ar­ish in North Sinai, killing 10 more in shootouts.

The tourist in­dus­try has been at­tacked sev­eral times in the past.
