` Egypt Prosecutor To Try Two Hundred Alleged Members Of Al-Qaeda Group ‘

 

#AceWorldNews – CAIRO – May 10 – Egypt’s prosecutor said Saturday that 200 alleged members of Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, an Al-Qaeda inspired militant group active in the Sinai Peninsula, would be tried for “terrorism” because of a number of deadly attacks launched against security forces.

Ansar Beit al-Maqdis has carried out some of the bloodiest attacks against Egypt’s security forces since Morsi’s overthrow last July.

This will be the first mass trial of jihadists since Egypt’s military ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.
