3 Egyptian police officers injured in roadside bomb

Oct. 1, 2013 1:30 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 2, 2013 5:14 P.M.)
EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Three Egyptian police officers were injured in a roadside bomb in Sinai on Tuesday, security officials said.

Three buses carrying security personnel were damaged by a bomb planted along the road leading from Rafah to el-Arish.

An armored vehicle accompanying the buses fired in the air to prevent further attacks.

Egyptian security forces announced a state of high alert in the Sinai peninsula as the country prepares to commemorate the October 6th, or Yom Kippur, war.

Militants in Sinai intensified their campaign against security forces after the military ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi on July 3.

Dozens of soldiers and policemen have been killed in daily attacks, as the army has poured troops and armor into the lawless peninsula that straddles Africa and Asia to crush the insurgency.

The Sinai offensive comes as part of a massive crackdown by the army-installed authorities on Islamists, which has seen hundreds killed and more than 2,000 arrested nationwide.
