A roadside bomb struck a police vehicle near a town in the Sinai Peninsula Thursday, killing a policeman and wounding two others, the interior ministry said.

 

The ISIS group’s Egypt affiliate has claimed regular attacks on security forces, who have struggled to quell the insurgency in the peninsula bordering Israel and the Gaza Strip.

 

The interior ministry said the bomb killed a police captain, and wounded a sergeant and a conscript, on a road leading to provincial capital El-Arish.
