Egypt has executed six members of a Sinai-based militant group with links to Islamic State for carrying out an attack on soldiers in 2014, the state news agency reported on Sunday.

The group, Sinai Peninsula, has killed hundreds of police and soldiers since the army toppled Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in 2013.
