EL-ARISH, Egypt (AP) — At least nine Egyptian soldiers are dead after a pair of suicide bombers rammed explosives-laden cars into military targets in Egypt's volatile Sinai Peninsula today.
One of the two bombings brought down a two-story building housing the local branch of military intelligence, while the other struck an army checkpoint about the same time. Security officials say an unknown number of troops are trapped under the rubble of building.
The attacks come less than a week after a suicide car bombing in Cairo targeted the convoy of Egypt's interior minister, who is in charge of the police. An al-Qaida-inspired group based in Sinai later claimed responsibility for that bombing.
There has been no claim of responsibility yet for today's attack.
Militant attacks in Sinai have become much more frequent, and deadly, since the ouster in July of Egypt's Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.
