Four people, at least, were killed on Wednesday when a car bomb exploded at a military intelligence facility in Egypt’s North Sinai city of Rafah, state television reported.
More than 10 people wounded due to the attack. State media reports say all the victims are soldiers.
The targeted building is allegedly the military intelligence headquarters in Rafah, Civilians have been reportedly killed when a wall of the building collapsed.
The privately-owned independent daily newspaper Al-Masry alyoum reported that two explosions occurred Wednesday near Egyptian intelligence headquarters in Rafah.
The Sinai, which borders Israel and the Gaza Strip, has seen a sharp rise in militant attacks since the army ousted Islamist president Mohamed Mursi in July.
