    6 Bases in Sinai under Bomb attacks

    Asma AlSharif, Mursi Mohammed , Reuters today wrote:Army sources estimate there are around 1,000 armed militants in Sinai, many of them nomadic Bedouin tribesmen, divided into different groups with varying ideologies or clan loyalties, and hard to track in the harsh terrain.

    Some want to establish Islamic law in Egypt, and are likely to have been incensed by Mursi's removal. Weapons are flowing in, especially from Libya, and a number of the groups are thought to have links with al Qaeda.

    Six police and army positions were attacked on Wednesday in North Sinai, a desert region near Egypt's border with Israel and the Palestinian Gaza Strip.

    Gunmen have attacked security checkpoints and other targets on an almost daily basis since July 3, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens.
