Two policemen killed in bomb attack in Egypt

Боевики ИГИЛ напали на египетский полицейский конвой 18 погибших

Death toll of Monday's anti-police terror attack in the city of Arish in Egypt's North Sinai province had climbed to 18, state-run Ahram newspaper reported.

Seven others were wounded in the attack, said security and military officials.

The police and military officials said the attack began with the detonation of roadside bombs that destroyed and set ablaze three armored vehicles and a fourth one carrying signal jamming equipment.

They then opened fire with machine guns at survivors of the blast. The wounded included a police brigadier general, according to the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief media.

Once limiting their operations to North Sinai, the terrorist groups have recently started to carry out terrorist attacks in different governorates in Egypt including Cairo the capital.

Three policemen were injured after one suspected militant detonated an explosive device to block their entry into the building and two other policemen were injured during the exchange of fire that followed.

Egypt has been suffering from a spike in terrorist attacks targeting civilians in the mainland over the past year.

In March, the military said militants killed 10 soldiers during an army raid in Sinai's central region.

Egypt accuses Hasm of being a militant wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group it outlawed in 2013.

It did not provide any casualty figures, but the attack appears to have been the deadliest on security forces in Sinai since July, when at least 23 soldiers were killed in a suicide auto bombing that targeted a checkpoint near the Gaza border. Police said the militants had sneaked into Cairo from the volatile northern Sinai.
