Ten members of Egypt’s security forces were killed by bombs which struck their vehicles in central Sinai, a military spokesman said on Thursday.

They died during an operation targeting what the army described as terrorist bases.



The spokesman said in a statement security forces killed 15 people and arrested seven others during the operation. They also found and destroyed half a tonne of TNT explosive and seized two four-wheel drive cars containing hand grenades and hundreds of mobile phones.
