François Picard and his guests analyse the powder keg that has become the Sinai Peninsula. Wednesday's attack, which killed 11 off-duty soldiers, is part of a growing spiral of violence pitting Cairo against radical militants. Some argue that the military is using the crisis to blur the distinction between Sinai militants and Egypt's ousted Muslim Brotherhood leadership.
