Egyptian army soldiers sit on top of an armoured personnel carrier behind a barbed wire checkpoint as they guard a street in Cairo on August 23, 2013Police on Friday shot dead two members of Egypt’s most active jihadist group Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, the interior ministry announced. It claimed one of the men killed at a checkpoint east of the capital had been responsible for the militant group’s operations in the Cairo region. Ansar Beit al-Maqdis (Partisans of Jerusalem), which has allied itself to the Islamic State group, is based in the Sinai Peninsula, and claims to be behind most of the major attacks on the security forces since the army ousted elected Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013. Police spotted the jihadists’ car at a checkpoint, the ministry statement said.
