ISMAILIA, Egypt - Gunmen attacked several checkpoints in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Thursday, killing at least five soldiers, security sources said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack but militants who support Islamic State, the ultra-hardline group that controls parts of Iraq and Syria, have carried out similar operations in Sinai.
