Egypt’s Sisi cuts short Ethiopia visit after deadly Sinai attacks

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi cut short a visit to the Ethiopian capital for an African Union summit, following a wave of deadly attacks on Thursday night in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula claimed by Islamic State’s Egypt wing. Sisi’s office said in a statement emailed on Friday morning that Sisi was heading back to Cairo to follow the situation. At least 26 security personnel were killed late on Thursday in four separate attacks in North Sinai, in some of the worst anti-government violence in months.
