'Terror' attack on Egypt naval boat leaves eight servicemen missing

(Telegraph) Eight Egyptian navy personnel were declared lost at sea on Wednesday night after unknown gunman attacked their patrol ship in a triple pronged sea-attack.

Four of the alleged attackers were killed in an ensuing firefight, which caused the navy ship to set ablaze. A further thirty-two were arrested, according to a military statement.

It described the assault as a 'terror attack', but did not identify the perpetrators.

An unnamed military official told the MENA news agency that air force and navy fighters had been deployed to rescue the ship’s crew.

Gee, I hope the Egyptians use only humane methods of extracting info from these alleged terrorists. Also, I hope they read them their Miranda rights and will give them enough time to lawyer up.
