(MENAFN - Saudi Press Agency) The Egyptian army said on Saturday it had killed 16 militants in Sinai, and a new group said it carried out a bomb attack on police in Cairo, underscoring the widening scope of militant violence since the army removed Mohamed Mursi from power, Reuters reported.

The army said its aircraft hit radicals near Sinai's border with the Gaza Strip on Friday evening.
The army has been trying to wrestle control of North Sinai from armed men who have turned their focus from Israel to the government since Mursi, a Brotherhood member, was deposed in July following mass protests against his rule.

The state has declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group. The Brotherhood says it is committed to peaceful activism.

The army said on Saturday a roadside bomb planted to target military personnel had been defused in Sinai.
