Egyptian authorities have arrested 25 militants in a Palestinian-led terror cell on suspicion of plotting attacks on oil pipelines and ships crossing the Suez Canal, Egypt's Interior Ministry said Thursday.

The ministry said the new cell is headed by a Palestinian and includes 24 Egyptians, mostly engineers and technicians, and it had contacts with militants in the Gaza Strip as well.

"They believe in takfiri and jihadi thought," the statement said, referring to the radical Sunni Muslim ideology espoused by militant groups like Al-Qaida.
