Egypt: Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis claims responsibility for South Sinai attack


Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, a Sinai-based jihadi group, has claimed responsibility for an attack that rocked South Sinai’s security department on Monday.

The group said that the blast, which killed one and injured 22 others, came in response to “the crime of killing protesters in Rabaa al-Adaweya, al-Nahda [Square] and Ramses,” referring to a series of crackdowns by security forces against supporters of Mohamed Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood.

In a statement published on several jihadi websites on Wednesday, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis claimed a suicide bomber passed three checkpoints in the area before detonating the device - and himself - outside the security building. The group claimed to avoid “civil Muslims” during the operation, explaining that an appropriate location was selected for this reason.

One person was killed and 22 others wounded in the attack, a security source said Monday.
