Egypt: Army Says War Against "Black Terrorism" to Continue

Cairo — Egypt's army will continue its war against "black terrorism and groups of darkness," whatever the scarcities may be, its spokesman Ahmed Aly has said.

Aly has also sent his condolences to the family of a soldier who was killed earlier today in the Sinai Peninsula.

Attacks on security personnel have increased since the overthrow of President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood last year.

Egypt's army ousted Mursi in July in response to mass demonstrations against his rule.
