An air raid by the Egyptian army in the town of Sheikh Zuweid in North Sinai late on Friday killed 16 “dangerous individuals” according to a military official.

The strike targeted terrorists and militants in the Sinai town, according to the armed forces spokesman's official Facebook page.

Already restive and underdeveloped, Sinai has seen an upswing in militant violence since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last summer, with regular attacks claiming the lives of dozens of security personnel.

Egypt has poured troops into the region while waging a sustained crackdown on Islamists — principally Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood — elsewhere in the country.

In the British Isles both men and ladies knitted commercially. Place the probe with the thermostat at the cool end with the viv, switch for the heat, and leave for any few hours. Letting the man you're dating know that you just've identified and are

Letting the man you're dating know that you just've identified and are wanting to fix certain issues that could possibly be bothering him may go a long way toward reversing his decision to require a break.
