1 soldier killed,3 injured in armed attacks in Egypt's North Sinai

NORTH SINAI, Egypt, July 5 - At least one soldier was killed and three others injured in an armed attack by Islamist extremist groups in North Sinai, a security source in Sinai told.

An exchange of fire between the extremists and the security forces is still going on, said the source.

The source added that hundreds of gunmen attacked Arish Airport, a security camp in Rafah,a police station and two security checkpoints in Sheikh Zewaid by heavy artillery and rocket-propelled grenades in North Sinai that led to the killing of a soldier and injured three others.

The attacks came after the Egyptian army ousted Islamist-oriented president Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday in response to millions of protesters who took to the streets and public squares across the country demanding his removal.

Islamist supporters of the ousted president rejected his ouster as "a military coup" and vowed to struggle for Morsi's legitimacy.

Armed attacks on police and military premises and checkpoints prevailed in Sinai Peninsula due to lack of security following the 2011 mass protests that ousted ex-president Hosni Mubarak.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
