CAIRO (AFP) - A little-known jihadist group, Ajnad Misr, claimed a series of attacks and vowed new ones targeting Egyptian security forces in a video posted on its Twitter account on Thursday.

In the video titled Retaliation is life, the group said that it had carried out eight attacks in Cairo since November 20, 2013.

It also said it would launch new attacks as revenge against the abuses inflicted by security forces on women protesters supporting ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.

"Our honour is screaming and asking whether there is a man to retaliate or has manhood died?", the video said.
