Police kill 40 militants in Egypt

Police in Egypt have killed dozens of militants during security raids in their hideout.

The interior ministry said the raids killed “40 terrorists” in Giza and North Sinai on Saturday morning.

It said the militants were planning a series of attacks on tourist sites, churches and military personnel.

The raids followed Friday’s roadside bomb attack on a tour bus in Giza.

No group has claimed it was behind the blast, which killed three Vietnamese tourists and an Egyptian tour guide, but Islamist militants have targeted tourists in Egypt in the past.
