Egyptian soldiers killed in terror attack in Sinai

Other Islamists operating in the western desert bordering Libya have also attacked security forces.

Eight Egyptian soldiers and 14 jihadis were killed Saturday when militants attacked an army camp, just hours after Egypt extended its state of emergency for the fourth time since past year.

"A group of 14 militant terrorists, four of them wearing explosive belts, attempted to break into one of the armed forces camps in Central Sinai before the sunrise", said Tamer al-Refaay, the military spokesman, in a statement.

Security forces also arrested 114 suspects and found and destroyed a training camp which included a shooting range, an obstacle course and an underground conference room, it said.

Egypt extended its nationwide state of emergency for three months as of April 14, according to the official gazette.

The attacks, mainly targeting police and military, increased after ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi in 2013 by military following massive protests against his rule.

The latest extension was to allow security forces to "take (measures) necessary to confront the dangers and funding of terrorism and safeguard security in all parts of the country", the official gazette said.

Under Egypt's constitution, the three-month state of emergency can only be renewed once, but the president can subsequently reinstate it.

A new decree further lengthening it was issued in October and then extended in January.

Almost two dozen Egyptian officers and soldiers were slaughtered and more than two dozen others were injured in an attack early Saturday morning by Islamic State terrorists at the largest Egyptian army base in Sinai.

More than 100 jihadists and at least 22 soldiers have been killed in the wider-ranging operation launched on February 9, according to army figures.
