At least two Egyptian policemen were killed and nine others injured on Saturday in a targeted bomb attack on their armoured vehicle in the restive North Sinai region, said an official at the interior ministry.

The official said security forces were combing the area for more bombs.

News reports said 12 people were injured in the attack, but there was no confirmation.

The explosion took place a few hours after the interior ministry said that police killed 14 terrorists in a gun battle in Ismailia city.
