CAIRO - Six people including two policemen were wounded on Saturday when two car bombs detonated near a police station in the Sinai Peninsula, an Islamist militant hotbed, security sources and the state news agency said.

Egypt is fighting Islamist insurgents who have killed hundreds of police and soldiers since the army ousted moderate elected Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013 following mass protests against his rule.

The two cars exploded when security forces fired at them after their drivers refused to stop near a police station in the Northern Sinai town of Sheikh Zuweid, security sources said.
