Egypt: 50 policemen killed during clashes with militants
The Interior Ministry said the shootout took place during a raid to arrest a number of suspected militants in the area. However, the Ministry of Interior today said that 16 policemen, including 11 officers, were killed in the clashes.

However, there are a handful of caveats to Steam's new online gift card scheme.

Select the desired gift card from the available selection. If the user accepts the gift, it's added to their Steam library. Now that you have to directly choose who to gift games to before purchase, hoarding is no longer an option. PayPal, Bitcoin, and traditional credit/debit card are the payment methods accepted.

An email message is sent to the selected friend, and the new gift card is also highlighted in the Steam client. If your friend lives in a different area of the world to you, Steam will automatically convert the currency before sending the gift card.

The gift cards come in increasing values of $5, $10, $25, $50, and $100.
