In Egypt, militants ambushed a convoy of police and security forces in the desert west of Cairo late Friday, killing 59 officers and seizing their weapons and ammunition. It’s not clear who was behind the well-coordinated attack, though the recently formed militant group Hasm claimed responsibility. Egypt’s government has accused the banned Muslim Brotherhood party of supporting Hasm, a charge the Brotherhood denies.
