An Army honor officer wipes his eye Aug. 7, 2012, in Cairo at the funeral of one of 16 soldiers killed in an attack over the weekend by suspected militants in Sinai. Mourners prayed for the dead at a mosque in an east Cairo suburb before the coffins, wrapped in Egypt’s red-white-and-black flag, were taken to a nearby square where a military funerary ceremony led by Defense Minister Hussein Tantawi was held.
