One police officer was killed and four conscripts injured in a Tuesday bomb attack in the northern Sinai Peninsula, security sources said.

The blast occurred as a police personnel carrier passed through the border city of Rafah, the sources said.

No individuals or groups have claimed responsibility for the attack.

Egypt's restive Sinai Peninsula, which shares borders with both Israel and the Gaza Strip, has been at the center of mounting violence against security personnel since the July 3 ouster of President Mohamed Morsi – Egypt's first freely-elected leader – by the powerful military establishment.
