Egypt says attack in Sinai was suicide bomber
CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's Interior Minister says Monday's attack on a security headquarters in the southern Sinai Peninsula was the work of a suicide bomber.
Mohammed Ibrahim told The Associated Press that another attack on the country's main satellite telecommunications center in the capital appeared to be in retaliation for the killing of more than 50 supporters of the former president in clashes with security forces a day earlier.
One satellite in the center was slightly damaged by a projectile fired from a distance. Communication was not impacted.
The suicide bombing in Sinai's el-Tor town, close to the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, killed three policemen.
Ibrahim also said Islamist militants aim to "distract" and cause instability. He said: "We are at war with them, and they are in their last gasp."
