In this undated photo released by the Egyptian Defense Ministry, Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi consoles a man at a funeral for several military personnel who were killed when a helicopter crashed in the Sinai Peninsula, at an undisclosed location in Egypt. Egypt's military spokesman, Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said that an Air Force helicopter crashed near the village of el-Kharouba in the northern Sinai Peninsula early Saturday, where troops are battling Islamic militants. An al-Qaida-inspired group based in the Sinai Peninsula has claimed responsibility for bringing down an Egyptian military helicopter in the lawless desert region.
