(Worthy News) - Egypt said Sunday that security forces have killed 19 militants in a shootout, including the gunmen suspected of killing seven Christians in an attack on pilgrims traveling to a remote desert monastery.
The Interior Ministry, which oversees the police, said the militants were tracked to a hideout in the desert west of the central province of Minya, the site of Friday’s attack, which also left 19 people wounded.
It said the alleged militants opened fire when they realized they were being besieged by security forces. It did not say when the shootout took place. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
