Egypt Hangs 15 over Terrorist Attacks on Security Forces
Local Editor

Egyptian authorities on Tuesday executed 15 prisoners convicted of attacks on security forces in the restive Sinai Peninsula, police officials said.

Egypt

The men were hanged in two jails where they had been held since military courts sentenced them for the attacks in the Sinai, where terrorists are waging an insurgency, the officials said.

It was the largest mass execution carried out in the North African country since six convicted terrorists were hanged in 2015.

The hangings come a week after Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] attacked a helicopter with an anti-tank missile at a North Sinai airport as the country's defense and interior ministers were visiting.

The ministers were unhurt in the attack but an aide to the defense minister was killed along with a pilot.

Daesh's Egypt affiliate killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers in attacks in the Sinai and targeted civilians in the mainland.

Egyptian courts sentenced hundreds to death over unrest since the military ousted divisive president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.
