Cairo – Egypt's security forces foiled on Monday a suicide bomb attack in El-Arish city in North Sinai.

A well-placed security source said a booby-trapped vehicle targeted a security checkpoint on El-Arish-El-Qantara road, but the security forces detonated it and killed its driver before approaching the scene.

No policemen were injured in the attack, the source pointed out.

Security forces also chased a number of militants, who were hiding near the blast site and exchanged fire with them, forcing them to flee the scene.

Terror attacks in Egypt have killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers since mid-2013 after the military removal of former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in response to mass protests against his one-year rule and his currently outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.
