5 Soldiers Dead as Wave of Violence Hits Egypt
BBC – Gunmen killed five Egyptian soldiers who were in a patrol vehicle outside of the Suez Canal city of Ismailiya, say security officials. A large car bomb struck headquarters of the security forces in southern Sinai, killing five, while a rocket attack hit a satellite station in a Cairo suburb.
The attacks follow a day of deadly clashes on Sunday. Security forces have been the frequent victims of attacks in northern Sinai, where analysts say a fully fledged insurgency is building.
