Gunmen kill 21 Egyptian troops




CAIRO: Gunmen firing rocket-propelled grenades attacked an Egyptian border guards checkpoint Saturday, killing 21 soldiers, officials and state media said, in one of the biggest assaults since Islamist president Mohamed Morsi’s ouster.
Militants have stepped up attacks on the security forces since Morsi was toppled in July 2013 as the army struggles to quell an Islamist insurgency that has killed scores of soldiers and police, mainly in the Sinai Peninsula bordering Israel and the Palestinian Gaza Strip.
