The death toll appears to be closer to about 100 after recent events. Another 100 were reportedly killed by Egyptian security forces in retaliation Wednesday into Thursday. The deaths came after 15 coordinated attacks on the Egyptian military.
The army said five checkpoints were attacked by about 70 militants and that soldiers had destroyed three landcruisers fitted with anti-aircraft guns.The acquisition of anti-aircraft guns makes the situation more complex, especially if the materiel came from Libya.
