Roadside explosions blast troop convoy in Egypt's Sinai

An Egyptian security official said three explosions have targeted a military and police convoy in volatile northern Sinai, wounding four troops.

The official said Friday's explosions, one of which was from a roadside bomb, hit near the town of Sheikh Zuweid, close to the border with the Gaza Strip.

The northern part of the Sinai Peninsula has seen a rise in attacks and suicide bombings by suspected Islamic and al-Al-Qaeda-inspired militants, especially after the Islamist President Mohammed Morsi was ousted in a popularly-backed coup in July.

Egyptian interim military-backed government has designated Morsi's group, the Muslim Brotherhood, as a terrorist organization and accuses it of ties to a known al-Al-Qaeda-inspired group that has claimed many of the Sinai attacks.
