2 Egypt policemen killed in Sinai bombing

A roadside bombing in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula kills two policemen, according to the interior ministry.

The Islamic State group’s self-styled Amaq news agency says a bomb planted by jihadists targeted a police mine-clearing vehicle, but it was not clear whether it was referring to the same incident.

The interior ministry says a police lieutenant and a sergeant were killed when a roadside bomb tore through a convoy, also wounding two officers and a conscript.
