28 militants killed in Egypt

At least 28 militants were killed and 16 others arrested in raids in Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid cities of Egypt`s North Sinai province, an official said Sunday.



Cairo: At least 28 militants were killed and 16 others arrested in raids in Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid cities of Egypt`s North Sinai province, an official said Sunday.

"Fifteen huts, seven vehicles and 24 motorbikes were destroyed in the raids Saturday and a truck carrying a tonne of oil seized -- all belonged to the extremists," the official told Xinhua.

Over the past few weeks, security forces have killed over 200 militants in the province as part of an "anti-terror war" launched by the new Egyptian leadership.

The new leadership launched a crackdown against former president Mohamed Morsi`s supporters, which has left at least 1,000 persons killed besides arrests of several thousands.
