Egypt launches major assault on militants in North Sinai ahead of elections, aims to curb insurgency by February end
Egypt began a major assault against militants on Friday focused on the Sinai peninsula, where Islamic State attacks have killed soldiers, police and civilians.
Egyptian authorities say security forces have killed at least 14 Islamic militants in Sinai and an adjacent Suez Canal province following the massacre at a village mosque in the northern part of the peninsula last week that killed 305 people.
The vibrant Indian community in Egypt celebrated Dussehra on 16 October. Over 600 persons attended the event, including several who travelled to Cairo from other cities like Alexandria, Port Said and Ismailia to join the celebrations.
