cairo - The death toll of the attack on a Friday mosque on the Sinai peninsula in Egypt, according to state media, increased to 305. The Egyptian Air Force bombarded several militant posts on the peninsula in the night from Friday to Saturday in retaliation for the bloody attack.
Dozens of terrorists opened fire after Friday prayers to believers who fled after a bomb exploded near the mosque. It was the bloodiest attack in Egypt in the modern history of the country.
On Saturday, the army reported that several militia militants had been destroyed by the air strikes, but concrete figures were missing. The attack on the mosque in Bir-al-Abed has not been claimed.
