Egypt Executes 4 Islamic Militants over 2015 Attack

Tuesday, 02 January 2018 05:38 AM

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt has executed four Islamic militants following their conviction by a military tribunal of killing three military academy students in a 2015 bomb attack.

The attack took place outside a stadium in the Nile Delta city of Kafr el-Sheikh as the military cadets were waiting for a bus to take them to the academy. Six other people were injured in the attack.

Tuesday's executions at a prison in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria bring to 19 the number of militants executed over the past week.

Authorities executed 15 militants on Dec. 26 after a military court convicted and sentenced them to death over a 2013 attack on a military checkpoint in the Sinai Peninsula, home of a long running insurgency by Islamic militants. Nine were killed in that attack.
