Egypt: 25 soldiers killed in Sinai Peninsula

Suspected militants armed with rocket-propelled grenades killed at least 25 Egyptian soldiers in the border city of Rafah, state-run Nile TV reported Monday.

The assailants struck two buses carrying security forces in the Sinai Peninsula. At least two other solders were injured, Nile TV said.

Sinai Peninsula is a lawless area that has been the site of frequent attacks even before Egypt's latest round of turmoil.

    Good, but they should not kill little pawns, they should kill the dictators in all over middle east as they did in Libya.

    25 soldiers killed in Sinai Peninsula, They should drop 2,500 in there and clean the whole area out. This is so sad because they are the same nationality. They should stand unified.
