An Al-Qaeda-inspired group based in the Egyptian Sinai threatened Thursday to attack contractors and workers involved in the construction of a security wall at a town in the restive peninsula.Security officials denied the construction of a barrier around Al-Arish, but said authorities started weeks ago to build a wall south of the town to secure the airport and nearby agricultural fields used by militants as hideouts.Most of the attacks have been carried out in the northern Sinai and have targeted soldiers and policemen, but militants have lately expanded their reach to the Nile Delta.
