One Egyptian was killed and six others were injured in a bomb attack on Wednesday on a security vehicle in Egypt's lawless Sinai Peninsula, near the border with Israel, security sources said.

Security officials and witnesses said the casualties included civilians and security officers. Egypt has been hit by a wave of violence, including attacks by Islamist militants based in Sinai, since the army ousted the elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July following mass protests against him.
