United Nations chief says Syria tensions could spark 'full-blown military escalation'
Guterres said he will continue to engage with member states to help achieve this objective. The UN chief said it was important to act in line with the UN charter and worldwide law.

Egypt faces an Islamic State insurgency in the remote North Sinai region that has killed hundreds of soldiers and policemen in recent years and has expanded to include attacks on civilians.

The statement stressed the Armed Forces are continuing to root out terrorism which is in turn making militants carry out desperate attempts at retaliation.

The state of emergency was first implemented in April 2017 after suicide bombers attacked two churches in Alexandria and Tanta, killing 47 people and injuring dozens. It was extended in July and again in October then January.

The incident comes amid Egypt's ongoing Operation Sinai 2018, launched "to implement the plan of comprehensive confrontation of terrorist and criminal elements and organisations in North and Central Sinai, and in other areas in the Nile Delta and desert areas west of the Nile Valley", according to the armed forces.
