Israel says "group of terrorists" attack Egypt border post

(Reuters) - Israel said a group of militants who tried to storm its border on Sunday had commandeered two Egyptian vehicles and driven them through a crossing on the Egyptian-Israeli border.

One of the vehicles exploded and the second was targeted by Israeli aircraft, military spokeswoman Avital Leibovich said, adding that about 15 people had been killed in the attack.
