ISMAILIA, Egypt - Islamists attacked the Egyptian government security headquarters in Northern Sinai on Sunday with a barrage of mortar bombs and machineguns, wounding three conscripts, security officials said.

The Islamists had climbed onto the roofs of buildings across from the headquarters building and fired rocket-propelled grenades, one security source said. Machinegun battles were still being fought around the building.
