` Egyptian Soldier is Killed whilst Driving a Bus when his Vehicle was Attacked by Militants in Sinai Peninsula ‘

#AceWorldNews – EGYPT – March 30 – An Egyptian soldier, driving a bus of police officers, was killed Sunday when the vehicle was attacked by militants in the town of Al-Arish in the Sinai Peninsula, according to Reuters citing a source in the army.

Three of the policemen who were inside the bus were wounded in the attack, for which no one has yet claimed responsibility.

Egypt’s Foreign Ministry says there’s been a surge of violence by the Sinai-based militants since the army ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
