Many Egyptian troops killed or wounded in North Sinai

Funeral prayers were held in Cairo and Sharqiya on Sunday to mourn the deaths of an officer and soldiers killed in an attack on Egypt's military in the Sinai Peninsula.

The Saturday's attack on the Egyptian army checkpoint in the restive Sinai had caused 15 casualties, while seven of the suspected Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) fighters were killed, the military said.

The breakdown of the military casualties was not immediately clear. Two security sources told the Reuters news agency some of the injuries were serious.
