ISLAMIC State-linked militants have been killed by Egyptian security forces during an attack on a terror base.

Eight jihadis were slaughtered in their training camp in a southern desert region, the Egyptian interior ministry said on Sunday.

Five other militants belonging to the Hasm Movement – which pledged allegiance to ISIS – were arrested in operations carried out in Giza and Sharqiya regions, it said.

Automatic weapons, ammunition and supplies were recovered at the Fayoum camp southwest of the capital.

Hasm, a group that emerged last year and has claimed several attacks on security forces, said on Friday it had carried out a shooting last week in Fayoum, a province about 60 km (37.28 miles) south of Cairo, that killed one policeman and injured three others.

Egypt accuses Hasm of being a militant wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group it outlawed in 2013. The Muslim Brotherhood denies this.

An Islamist insurgency in the rugged Sinai Peninsula strengthened after the Egyptian military overthrew President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in mid-2013 following mass protests against his rule.

The militant group staging the insurgency pledged allegiance to ISIS in 2014.
