Ahram Online, Monday 6 Aug 2012

An Egyptian security source has told Ahram Online that the army helicopters, with the help of army rangers, are attempting to apprehend suspects in the blast that killed 16 soldiers and injured seven earlier on Sunday evening.

The source added that army units, as of the early hours of Monday, have completely surrounded the city of Rafah (on the Egypt side of the Egypt-Gaza) border to prevent suspects from escaping.
