Cairo — Investigations have revealed that a suicide bomber is behind the Sinai explosion that killed four people on Sunday.

A blast on a tourist bus killed three Korean tourists and their Egyptian driver on Sunday in the tourist resort city of Taba in the Sinai Peninsula.

An official has said that security cameras captured footage of a man said to have got on the bus with the purpose of bombing it.

Attacks on police and army forces have increased since the ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in July.
