Eight “extremely dangerous” terrorists were killed during an operation in western Egypt, announced the military on Saturday.

Several others were arrested in the operation, said military spokesman Colonel Tamer al-Rifai.

He added that three vehicles and several weapons were confiscated in the raid.

The air force had provided intelligence information on the terrorist cell, as the anti-terrorism forces combed the area, said Rifai.
