CAIRO: Four Egyptian conscripts were injured when a group of militants coming from Sheikh Zuwayed attempted to attack a security convoy on the side of the main road linking Rafah to Arish, eyewitnesses told Youm7 Sunday.

In addition, a policeman was shot dead and three conscripts were injured Sunday morning when their bus was attacked in El-Kharouba region, North Sinai, a military source told Youm7.

Attacks have surged since the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi on July 3. Sinai-based jihadist group Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis has claimed responsibility for most of the attacks.
