Egypt: Car bomber strikes police checkpoint


Five police officers have been killed in a suicide car-bomb attack at a checkpoint in Egypt’s northern Sinai.

At least 10 people were reportedly injured in the January 9 attack, in which the attacker used a garbage truck loaded with explosives to hit the police checkpoint in the city of El-Arish.

The massive explosion destroyed three floors of a police building and rescue work is continuing.

There has been no claim of responsibility, but a local affiliate of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization has carried out similar attacks against Egyptian security forces in Sinai and other parts of the country.
