IS attack on Sinai convoy 'kills 18 Egyptian police', security sources say


 
 
At least 18 policemen have been killed in an attack on a convoy in Egypt's Sinai peninsula claimed by so-called Islamic State, security sources say.

Militants detonated a roadside bomb near the town of el-Arish, reportedly destroying three armoured vehicles and a fourth with signal-jamming equipment.


They then opened fire with machine guns at survivors of the blast.


The interior ministry confirmed there had been an attack and that several policemen had been killed or injured.
