  1. Islamic Militants Kill 27 in Sinai Blasts

    Insurgents aligned with ISIS claimed responsibility for four attacks last night in northern Egypt that killed 27 and injured scores. The Egyptian military dismissed their claim, instead blaming the Muslim Brotherhood, long suspected of inciting violence by providing arms to Sinai terrorists. The U.S. condemned the attacks, reiterating its support for Cairo’s struggle against terror. Expect more clampdowns on militants in the north, as well as rising tensions across Egypt as the country marks the fourth anniversary of its Arab Spring.
