Egypt: Soldier Wounded in Sinai Bomb Explosion

Sinai — An Egyptian soldier was wounded in a bomb explosion inside an armored vehcile on Tuesday in North Sinai's Arish, security sources said.

Egypt has stepped up security in the lawless peninsula to combat repeated armed attacks targeting the police and army, which rose up since the ouster of President Mohamed Mursi in July.

The army ousted Mursi last year in response to mass protests against his rule.
