"Egyptian army units and security forces raided several homes in the northern Sinai peninsula Monday, killing one suspected militant and arresting 4 others, security officials said. The raids are part of a major operation against al-Qaida-inspired militants in Sinai who have taken advantage the security vacuum in the area following the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak's in February to launch increasingly brazen attacks on police patrols and a key pipeline that carries natural gas to Jordan and Israel."
