One security officer and seven others were killed in two successive explosions around security areas in Egypt's Sinai region, near the border with Israel, the Interior Ministry and security officials said.

The Interior Ministry said seven people were killed and around 25 others were injured in an explosion. Security sources said the rocket was targeting North Sinai's main security compound but instead fell in front of a nearby crowded supermarket in Sinai's northern city of Al-Arish.

A few minutes later, two rockets hit a security unit in the same city killing an officer and injuring seven others, medical sources said.
