Twenty-seven killed in attacks in Egypt's North Sinai, Suez

CAIRO (Reuters) - Twenty-seven people were killed in four attacks in Egypt's North Sinai and Suez, security and medical sources said, in some of the worst anti-state violence in months and after commemorations around the anniversary of the 2011 uprising turned deadly this week. Egypt's government faces an Islamist insurgency based in Sinai and growing discontent with what critics perceive as heavy handed security tactics. Thursday's first attack was a bombing of military buildings in the capital of North Sinai province, that killed 25 and wounded at least 58, including 9 civilians, security and medical sources said #facebook #United States #India #Egypt #Brazil #Technology #Russia #United Kingdom #author #opinion #article
