CAIRO: Seven jihadists were killed in a shootout in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula during a joint operation by police and the army, Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said on Sunday. The seven men were among “the most dangerous elements of Ansar Beit al-Maqdis” and had taken part in a July attack on a border post with Libya that killed 22 soldiers, he told a news conference.
