CAIRO - A radical Islamist group claimed responsibility on Sunday for two suicide bombings which killed a soldier and wounded at least eight other people near the Egyptian tourist city of Sharm El-Sheikh on Friday.

Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, the most active of the militant groups waging an insurgency against the army-backed government since it deposed elected leader Mohamed Morsi last summer, made the claim in a statement posted online.

"We announce our responsibility for the attacks which targeted a security checkpoint and a tourist bus in South Sinai," the statement said. "We will not rest ... until we avenge Muslims' blood and honor."
