Twin bomb attack against army in Egypt's Sinai


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.

Minutes later, a second explosion hit an army checkpoint nearby. There were no immediate reports of casualties.
