Gunmen Target Egypt Truck Convoy, 9 Killed

Suspected militants shot dead at least nine truck drivers in Egypt’s Sinai region late on Thursday when they targeted a transport convoy, setting the vehicles on fire, medical and security sources said on Friday. Egypt’s security forces have since 2014 been battling a self-styled Islamic State terrorist affiliate in northern Sinai, where militants have mostly hit police and soldiers but also occasionally targeted infrastructure and businesses, Reuters reported. Two security sources in al-Arish, the area capital, said armed men attacked the convoy, which was carrying coal to a cement factory. A military spokesman said there was no official statement. An interior ministry official did not respond to a request for information.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
