Egypt: Deadly blast targets soldiers in Sinai

An attack targeting soldiers in the Sinai peninsula has caused 10 casualties, an army spokesman said. No group has claimed responsibility. Egyptian security forces have been waging an insurgency in the region for years.
Egyptian soldiers were targeted when their armored vehicle was hit in a blast in the restive northern Sinai region on Thursday, the Egyptian army said.
Army spokesman Tamer Refai said that 10 soldiers were either killed or wounded in the incident, but did not specify how many of them had died. There was at least one officer in the group.
The blast took place south of the small town of Bir al-Abd, Refai said. 
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
