ISIS urges attacks during Egypt elections

A video purportedly by the Islamic State’s affiliate in Egypt is calling on its fighters to stage attacks during next month’s presidential elections and warning Egyptians to stay away from polling centers, The Associated Press reported Monday.

The 23-minute video was posted late Sunday on websites known to be sympathetic to the group. While it could not be independently verified, noted AP, it appeared similar to past releases by the group.
