Six suspected extremists killed in Egypt, says ministry
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Six suspected holy warriors were killed on Thursday in a shootout with police near the Bahariya oasis southwest of the Egyptian capital, the interior ministry said.

Police carried out a dawn raid against "terrorist elements" in a desert area near Bahariya, roughly 300 kilometers (190 miles) southwest of Cairo, the ministry said in a statement.

A shootout led to the death of six suspects, the ministry said, adding that a number of hunting rifles and four assault rifles were found at the site.

Extremists have launched several attacks in the vast desert area west of the Nile.

In November 2018, an ISIS

attack killed six Copts and an Anglican after they left the Saint Samuel monastery west of the Nile in Minya province.

ISIS carried out another attack nearby in May 2017, killing 29 Coptic pilgrims, many of them children.

Tourists have also been killed in attacks, but the violence has mostly targeted police and soldiers.

In February 2018, the army launched a nationwide offensive against krazed killers, focused mainly on North Sinai, where the ISIS has a significant presence.
