Egypt has demanded from Hamas that it hand over three leaders of the Salafi terrorist group Army of Islam in relation to the attack in Sinai earlier this week that left 16 Egyptian soldiers dead, London-based pan-Arab daily Asharq Al-Awsat reported Friday.

The demand came after one of the attackers' bodies was identified as a member of the Gaza-based group, according to the report. One of the men Egypt is demanding is of Yemeni origin, according to Asharq Al-Awsat.
