5 terrorists killed, 16 arrested in army raids
At least five terrorists were killed and 16 others arrested during army raids in Egypt's restive North Sinai, the military said on Sunday.
The takfiri terrorists included one of the leaders of the Sinai-based terrorist group Ansar Biet el-Maqdes, Egypt's military spokesperson Colonel Tamer el-Refa'e said in a statement.
Sixteen suspected terrorists were also arrested during the raids, he said.
Egypt's North Sinai has witnessed many terror attacks since the January 2011 revolution that toppled the former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
