An Alexandria prosecutor has ordered that four suspected jihadists, who were arrested on the desert road on Wednesday, be detained for four days pending an investigation.
A security source said that an ambush had found the four men suspicious and when it searched their vehicle, it found weapons, including a machinegun, bullets, and hand grenades.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the four men are jihadists.
During their arrest, one of the suspects threatened to discharge a bomb, chanting “Allah Akbar” (God is great) and accusing police forces of blasphemy.
The police forces successfully arrested the suspects and defused the bomb.
