Car bomb attack 'kills 10' Egyptian soldiers in Sinai

Ten Egyptian soldiers were killed and 35 wounded in a car bomb near the North Sinai city of El-Arish, a security official has said.

The soldiers were travelling in a convoy ahead of the attack.

The attack is one of the deadliest in the Sinai Peninsula since al Qaeda-inspired militants began stepping up assaults following the army's ousting of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July.
