ISIS says it used suicide car bomb against Egyptian police

ISIS group says it used a suicide car bomb in its deadly attack on a police convoy.


:: The extremist ISIS group says it used a suicide car bomb in its deadly attack on a police convoy in the turbulent north of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

The account given by Egypt’s Interior Ministry of Monday’s attack says that a car rushed toward the convoy exploded when policemen in the convoy shot at it.

Egyptian security and military officials say four armored vehicles and a fifth one carrying signal-jamming equipment were destroyed in the attack and a police pickup was commandeered by the militants.

They say 18 police were killed and another seven wounded in the attack.

The late Monday ISIS statement says the attack left a total of 35 dead or wounded and identifies the suicide bomber by his alias, Abu Suleiman al-Masri.
