Israel calls on Egypt to tighten security in Sinai

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel’s defense minister called on Cairo to assert control over the Sinai peninsula after militants attacked an Egyptian border post on Sunday, killing about 15 people, and drove two vehicles through a border-crossing with Israel.

“The terrorists’ actions again show the need for determined Egyptian action to impose security and prevent terror in Sinai,” Ehud Barak said in a statement.
