Egypt armed forces kill 32'criminals' in Sinai: official

CAIRO--Egypt's armed forces have killed 32 “criminal elements” in an ongoing operation against Islamists in the lawless Sinai peninsula, a military spokesman said on Saturday.

Colonel Ahmed Mohammed Ali said 38 people including “non-Egyptians” had been arrested during “Operation Sinai,” which was launched on August 7, days after gunmen killed 16 soldiers at a border post.

Some of the non-Egyptians had been arrested on drugs charges, he told reporters.

“The operation will continue until its goals have been achieved... These are not just military goals but also developmental goals for the Sinai,” Ali said.
