Egyptian military arrests 11 people in Sinai

Cairo: The Egyptian armed forces Tuesday arrested 11 people, including two Palestinians, in Sinai over attacks on the police and army premises.

The forces raided several criminal hideouts early Tuesday morning and arrested them, Xinhua reported citing the official Egyptian news agency MENA.

The operation came one day after suspected militants ambushed two buses carrying security forces in Egypt's northern Sinai, killing at least 25 soldiers.

The security condition deteriorated in Sinai since the ouster of former president Hosni Mubarak in 2011, and became worse after his successor Mohamed Morsi's government was toppled, which triggered violence between security forces and Morsi's supporters.
