CAIRO - An Egyptian soldier was killed and another wounded on Thursday when a bomb targeted an armored vehicle in the Northern Sinai, medical and security sources said, the latest in a wave of violence in a region hit by an Islamist insurgency.

The attack was in the town of Sheik Zuweid, security sources said.

North Sinai is the epicenter of an insurgency that has killed hundreds of members of the security services since mid-2013, when then-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi after mass protests. Sisi was elected president last year.
