UPDATE: The militants who attacked a Sufi mosque in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula on Friday killed 305 people, including 27 children. Another 128 suffered injuries. Egyptian officials raised the death toll Saturday as horrific details about the attack began to emerge. Survivors said between 25 and 30 militants descended on the mosque, arriving in all-terrain vehicles. They positioned themselves at the mosque’s 12 windows and doors and began firing on the worshippers just as the imam was about to begin delivering his message. Some of the attackers wore masks.
