Cairo: Two children were killed in clashes between the Army and jihadists in Egypt`s Sinai on Friday a day after at least 30 people died in violence there, security officials said.

Health officials said a six-month-old baby was hit in the head by a bullet and a six-year-old was killed in a rocket blast in the peninsula. Two more people including a 12-year-old were badly wounded by gunfire.

The latest deaths came as President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Friday cut short a visit to Ethiopia for a regional summit and flew home to deal with the wave of violence, his office said.
