Associated press FILE -- In this Monday Aug. 6, 2012 file photograph, Egyptian border guards patrol near the border with Israel in Rafah, Egypt. Egypt deployed helicopter gunships to the Sinai Peninsula on Monday to hunt for the militants who killed at least 16 soldiers Sunday when the troops at a checkpoint were having the traditional meal at the end of the daily fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. After decades of neglect and with the collapse of government authority the past 18 months, Egypt‡s Sinai Peninsula has become fertile ground for Islamic extremists. Militant groups have taken root, carrying out attacks against neighboring Israel and now turning their guns against Egypt‡s military as they vow to set up an Islamic state.
