Bombs in Sinai leave three wounded
Car bombs left three civilians wounded in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula Sunday, according to Agence France Presse.
A car laden with bombs detonated near government buildings in the border town of Rafah approximately 10 meters from a bus that was transporting government soldiers.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but jihadists Ansar Beit Al Maqdis (Partisans of Jerusalem) have claimed some of the deadliest attacks in the area targeting security forces since the overthrow of former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi.
Egyptian authorities have increased their presence in the area as attacks increase in order to "combat the growing militancy" according to the AFP report.
