Extremists behead 4 in Egypt for ‘spying’

Sinai-based jihadists claim on Thursday that they beheaded four Egyptians who provided information to Israel, Reuters reports.

According to Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, the information led to a July 23 Israeli airstrike on the group that killed three of its members. Egypt has denied that Israeli planes were in its airspace on that day.

The group released a video on Twitter in which the four men admitted to either spending time in Israeli jails or being paid by the Mossad before they were beheaded.
