Egypt's armed forces killed six "extremely dangerous" militants and injured four in a raid in North Sinai on Friday, the army spokesman said.

A statement on the spokesman's Facebook page said the army had also managed to destroy three stores, which contained 350 explosives.

"The armed forces also destroyed 12 hideouts, 13 motorcycles and seven cars on the border strip of North Sinai," he added.

The Egyptian army and police have been battling an entrenched Islamist insurgency for several years in North Sinai.
