Sinai bomb kills six Egypt policemen, ministry says
The bomb exploded as their armored convoy passed through the road between el-Arish and the town of Rafah
A roadside bomb in Egypt’s northern Sinai region killed six policemen on Tuesday, the interior ministry said.
The bomb exploded as their armored convoy passed through the road between North Sinai provincial capital el-Arish and the town of Rafah on the Gaza border, leaving two other policemen wounded.
Militants in Sinai have stepped up attacks on policemen and soldiers since then-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi toppled President Mohammad Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in July 2013.
