Egypt said it has dismantled three 'terrorist cells'

Egypt said Monday it has dismantled three "terrorist cells" targeting security forces, including one run by jihadists and another operated by student supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.

"Police efforts resulted in the arrests of terrorist elements of these cells which targeted security forces," interim interior minister Mohamed Ibrahim said at a news conference.

He said one group was operated by Ajnad Misr (Soldiers of Egypt), a jihadist movement which has claimed several attacks targeting policemen in Cairo.

"Police arrested three leaders and four members of this group run by Ajnad Misr in Giza province" near Cairo, Ibrahim said. [AFP]
