Egypt, Libya announce deeper security cooperation to "fight terrorism"

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt will train Libyan forces to fight terrorism and help secure a shared border, the prime ministers of the two states announced in Cairo on Wednesday, stepping up efforts against Islamist insurgents in both countries. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has expressed concerns over militants who have capitalised on the chaos in post-Gaddafi Libya to set up operations there and sneak across the border into Egypt. They have forged ties with Egypt's Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, the Sinai-based militant group that has stepped up attacks on soldiers and policemen since Sisi as army chief removed the Muslim Brotherhood from power last year #United States #India #China #Egypt #France #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico
