ISMALIA: An explosion targeting a military vehicle killed five soldiers near the town of Sheikh Zuweid in Egypt’s North Sinai on Sunday, a security source said, a region beset by Islamist militant violence.

North Sinai is the epicentre of an insurgency that has killed hundreds of members of the security services mid-2013, when then-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted Islamist president Mohamed Mursi after mass protests against his rule.
