Reuters first to report Egyptian fears of Islamist militants in Libya

Reuters was first to report Egyptian fears of Islamist militants operating just over the border in Libya. Chaos in the country has allowed militants to set up makeshift training camps only a few kilometers from Egypt’s border, according to Egyptian security officials. The militants harbor ambitions similar to the al Qaeda breakaway group that has seized large swathes of Iraq; they want to topple Sisi and create a caliphate in Egypt.
