Four soldiers are dead after a gunman attacked a military bus on Sunday. Nine others were also wounded in the bus attack. The bus was travelling in the Sinai Peninsula, security sources said.
Since Morsi’s ouster last summer, Sinai-based militants have stepped up violence against the state. Attacks have become bolder in recent months and have also spread to Cairo and other cities.
