Sinai Province militants call for attacks on Egypt's judges -recording

  • Published:

CAIRO, May 20 (Reuters) - The leader of Sinai Province, a militant group in Egypt with links to Islamic State, called on followers to attack judges in an audio statement posted on a prominent jihadist website on Wednesday.

The statement appeared days after six members of the group were executed for an attack on soldiers in Cairo last year, and follows a court's decision on Saturday to seek the death penalty for ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.

Reuters could not confirm the authenticity of the recording.
