Egyptian border guard shot and wounded in Sinai, allegedly by Bedouin

A policeman and a security official said an Egyptian border guard was shot and wounded, allegedly by local Bedouins, in a restive area of the Sinai Peninsula on Thursday. The shooting comes a day after local authorities and tribal leaders declared a truce to end violent clashes between angry Bedouins and police that left three Bedouins dead and five police injured. The clashes started after police killed a Bedouin on Monday. Impoverished Bedouin in northern Sinai have been restive for years, demonstrating over neglect by the central government and security sweeps following terrorist incidents.
