Ten Egyptian soldiers were killed in two roadside bombings as they clashed with Islamic State group jihadists in the Sinai Peninsula, the military said on Thursday. Fifteen jihadists were also killed in the fighting, the military said in a statement, without saying when the incidents took place. The military said the clashes broke out when soldiers raided "an extremely dangerous" jihadist hideout. The Islamic State group had said in a statement on Wednesday afternoon that it blew up two army vehicles during clashes south of the Sinai city of El-Arish. The jihadists have killed hundreds of soldiers and policemen since the army overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013 and cracked down on his supporters. The attacks have mostly been confined to Sinai, which borders Israel and the Palestinian Gaza Strip, but the jihadists have also struck elsewhere.

Islamic state inspired attack, they want to know every body this person has spoken to. I am getting the feeling that he is somebody who was probably on the radar but not very high up it, and that is the problem. There are over 3000 people that the police and MI5 are aware that this country with jihadists sympathies, probably a great deal more they don't know about. They can't watch.

The prime minister was in parliament at the time of the attack and was ushered away in a silver car as gunfire rang out. 'Islamist-related terrorism' Rowley said on Wednesday police suspected they were dealing with "Islamist-related terrorism," adding that investigators believed they knew the assailant's identity. Queen Elizabeth II postponed her appearance on Thursday to open the new headquarters of London's Metropolitan Police, where the force's flag flew at half-mast following the attack. The attack came a year to the day after Islamic State jihadists killed 32 people in twin bomb attacks in Brussels and after a series of deadly assaults in Europe that had spared Britain – until Wednesday.

IRNAIraq is not going to abandon the Islamic Republic of Iran to abide by the United States, says senior Iraqi expert. Adnan Al Seraj, member of Iraq's State of Law Coalition, said on Wednesday that the Iraqi government is not going to sever its strong and close ties with its neighbor, Iran, reported Iraqi media. Engagement between Iraq and Iran is based on close, neighborly ties, Al Seraj said, referring to the visit between Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and US President Donald Trump in Washington on Monday. Al-Abadi made clear the issue during talks with the US president, Al Seraj said, referring to intertwined ties between Baghdad and Tehran. During his visit, Al-Abadi told president Trump that Iraq’s ties with its neighbors are private issues, he said. Baghdad is not willing to act on behalf of others and pursue their policies in its dealings with the Islamic Republic.

“The city of London and her majesty's government have the full support of the U.S. government in responding to the attack and bringing those to justice who are responsible,” he said. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was hosting his British counterpart, Boris Johnson, in Washington at a meeting on the global fight against Islamic State, condemned the attack but stopped short of referring to it as a terrorist act. On behalf of the United States, I express my condolences to the victims and their families, Tillerson said. We condemn these horrific acts of violence, and whether they were carried out by troubled individuals or by terrorists, the victims know no difference.
