Egypt's military killed 16 suspected Islamic militants in a series of airstrikes on hideouts in the northern Sinai Peninsula, a spokesman said Saturday, alleging that the fighters had ties to the ousted president's Muslim Brotherhood group. The military has been waging a wide offensive against militant groups in Sinai, where they have solidified their position since the country's 2011 uprising. Militancy spread to central Cairo and Nile Delta cities over the past months in retaliation for the military's July ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi after millions demanded his resignation. less
