Cairo, Apr 14 (Reuters) Eight Egyptian soldiers and 14 militants were killed in a confrontation in central Sinai on Saturday, the army said in a statement.

Egypt has been fighting an Islamist insurgency in the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula since President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Mursi in 2013.
