CAIRO: Gunmen killed an Egyptian military officer and wounded three soldiers in an attack on an army vehicle northeast of  in Sharqia province Cairo on Tuesday, security sources said, raising concerns that an Islamist insurgency is spreading beyond the Sinai.

The number of militant attacks has risen since deposing former President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood on July 3. Most of the attacks on the army have been limited to Sinai. Today’s attack took place in Sharqia province in the Nile Delta.
