Tip-off of a bomb attack delayed flight from Cairo airport
The flight to London was delayed for an hour Saturday after an anonymous caller phoned in to warn that two passengers on the EgyptAir flight were suicide bombers planning an attack.
Further south, thousands of Egyptian army and security troops raided 12 villages in the North Sinai town of Sheikh Zuwaid, to flush out jihadi terrorist hideouts. At least 31 terrorists were killed and scores injured. The clashes are still ongoing.
