Militant group in Egypt's Sinai warns military

An al-Qaeda-inspired group in Egypt's Sinai has warned the country's military and police, urging troops to desert their ranks or face death at the hands of its fighters.

Ansar Jerusalem, or Ansar Beit al-Maqdis as the group is known, said in a statement on militant websit that it considers Egyptian troops to be infidels because they answer to a secular government.

Ansar Jerusalem said "if the warning is ignored, we will be more determined to fight the military and police".
