Sinai attacks September 2013

A man is seen riding his motorbike through a wall that was destroyed by an attack by Egyptian Army the day before in a village on the outskirt of the Northern Sinai town of Sheik Zuweid on September 10, 2013. A series of attacks in Egypt's restive Sinai Peninsula, mostly against soldiers, killed at least four people, security officials said. The violence comes as the Egyptian military presses its campaign in Sinai to quell an insurgency that surged after the army overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi on July 3.
