Egypt says its forces kill 4 militants in Sinai
CAIRO, Egypt says security forces have killed 4 militants in the northern part of Sinai Peninsula, AP reported.
The Interior Ministry says the four were killed in a shootout with police south of the Mediterranean city of el-Arish on Saturday. It says the police seized automatic rifles, bombs and explosive belts.
The ministry says the four were implicated in an attack earlier this week on a police checkpoint in northern Sinai that authorities say left eight policemen dead. On Thursday, authorities said security forces killed 14 suspected militants linked to the attack.
