Armed group steps up attacks in Egypt

Ansar Beir El Maqdis says it has killed 11 Egyptian soldiers and it claims responsibility for a series of attacks.

An armed group calling itself Ansar Beir El Maqdis, or the Supporters of Jerusalem says it killed eleven Egyptian soldiers in Sinai last month.

The group has also claimed responsibility for a series of attacks throughout the country.

It’s a campaign that has gained momentum since the ousting of President Mohammed Morsi in July.
