CAIRO: A police officer and five conscripts were killed Tuesday morning in a bomb attack on their armored vehicle in North Sinai, officials said.

In a short press statement released on Tuesday morning, the Ministry of Interior said the car was carrying both military and police forces and was attacked on the highway between Rafah and Arish.

No further details were reported yet but the ministry said a security cordon was established around the crime scene as investigations started.

The attack comes following a press conference held by Minister of Interior Mohamed Ibrahim on Sunday, during which he gave a report on several recent terrorist attacks on security forces.
