Egyptian security forces thwarted a terror attack aimed at tourists in southern Sinai, the London-based pan Arabic daily Al-Hayat reported on Tuesday.

According to the report, a total of nine jihadi suspects are in custody, after being arrested near Gaza on Friday in possession of explosives, a rocket propelled grenade launcher, and ammunition.

The Al-Hayat report, which was reproduced by Channel 2, cited an Egyptian security source as saying that the intended attack was supposed to occur during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.

"It's too soon to determine how many jihadi  cells exist in various districts [in Sinai]," the Egyptian security source was quoted as saying, adding that their intention was to strike vital assets.
