As-Sisi Assassination Plot Foiled in Egypt

Egyptian security forces arrested six members of a 15-man Salafist terror cell who had planned to attack newly elected President Abdel Fattah As-Sisi's entourage after his swearing-in ceremony next Sunday.

The arrest was reported in the Egyptian paper Al-Watan, which added that diagrams of the new president's palaces and paths of how to enter them were found in the possession of the terrorists, according to Yediot Aharonot on Friday.
