Foreign intelligence behind attack on army border post: Egypt

The site of an attack in al-Wadi al-Gadid, close to the El-Farafrah oasis, in the western desert, some 630 kms west of Cairo, near the frontier with LibyaEgypt said Thursday that foreign intelligence services were prime suspects in an attack last week that killed 22 soldiers near its border with restive Libya. Unidentified militants firing rocket-propelled grenades and machine-guns attacked a checkpoint in Egypt’s western desert last Saturday. “Foreign intelligence services are likely to be behind the terrorist elements which carried out” the attack, interior ministry spokesman Hani Abdel Latif said, quoted by state news agency MENA, without naming any countries. “The terrorist operations (in Egypt) are carried out by terrorist elements, mercenaries, trained in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, and recruited by foreign intelligence services,” Abdel Latif said.
