Egyptian Army troops kill "Takfiri" gunman.

CAIRO, Feb 5 (KUNA) -- Egyptian Army troops have attacked extremist gunmen's hideouts in North Sinai killing one in the action. The army said in a statement on Monday the regulars, in cooperation with the Air Force, killed "a very dangerous Takfiri gunman" and detained six others in the north of the peninsula. The army demolished two depots storing motorcycles' spare parts and explosives. A large number of hideouts used by these elements have been discovered. The Egyptian authorities use the term "Takfiris" in reference to Muslim devotees, particularly anti-establishment gunmen advocating intolerance, coercion and violence. (end) rg.rk
