ISMAILIA - Gunmen stormed an Egyptian security forces base in the Sinai Peninsula at dawn on Monday and exchanged gunfire with forces inside the base before retreating, security sources said.

The identity of the attackers was not immediately clear, but security sources said they were likely to be Islamist militants.
