Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has said that its forces have struck "terrorist training camps" in retaliation for an attack on Coptic Christians.

State media say six strikes hit the town of Derna in neighbouring Libya.

Gunmen earlier attacked a bus carrying worshippers in central Egypt, killing at least 28 people and wounding 25 others.

President Sisi said he would "not hesitate to strike terrorist camps anywhere".

Announcing the strike in a TV speech late on Friday, he promised to "protect their people from the evil".
