Roadside bomb kills two police personnel in Egypt's volatile Sinai

Al-Arish, Egypt A roadside bomb on Sunday hit a police vehicle in Egypt's volatile northern Sinai region, killing two personnel, according to a security official.

Five other police conscripts and a civilian were also injured in the blast on a road south of al-Arish, the capital city of northern Sinai, the official added on condition of anonymity.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Egypt has seen a spate of deadly militant attacks targeting security forces, mainly in northern Sinai, since the army's 2013 overthrow of Islamist president Mohammed Morsi following mass protests against his rule.
Most attacks have been claimed by the Islamic State extremist militia.
