Twin bomb attack against army in Egypt’s Sinai: security
CAIRO (AFP) - Two bomb attacks on Wednesday targeted Egypt’s army in the restive Sinai peninsula, where the military is engaged in a campaign to quell an insurgency, security officials said.
“A large explosion” targeted the military intelligence headquarters in Rafah on the border with the Gaza Strip, one official said.
Witnesses said the powerful blast shattered the windows of other buildings in the Imam Ali area in Rafah where the military building is located.
Minutes later, a second explosion hit an army checkpoint nearby. There were no immediate reports of casualties.
