JERUSALEM, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Israeli troops killed at least two militants along the Israel-Egypt border on Friday as an attack was mounted on an Israeli patrol, Israeli media reported.

"The troops managed to thwart a major attack in the area," Israel Radio's military affairs reporter said.

There was no official word from Israeli sources of any casualties among the troops. (Writing by Ori Lewis; Editing by Janet Lawrence)
