CAIRO - A top leader of Egypt's most active Islamist militant group Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis was killed on Friday by Egyptian soldiers in the lawless north of the Sinai Peninsula, a military spokesman said on Facebook.

Sinai-based Ansar, which seeks to topple the government, has killed hundreds of Egyptian soldiers and police over the past year and beheaded several people in recent weeks, saying they were spies for Israeli intelligence.

The spokesman said Shehata Farhan was implicated in operations targeting of police and security forces and was killed during a raid in the town of Rafah, near the border with Gaza.
