Egypt's army foils suicide attack on North Sinai security checkpoint
[AlAhram] Egypt's Armed Forces foiled a suicide kaboom targeting a security checkpoint early Thursday in North Sinai governorate.

According to an Armed Forces statement, the suicide attacker attempted to target a security checkpoint near a parking lot in Sheikh Zuweid city.

The terrorist element was killed by security forces before arriving to the checkpoint, yet his belt detonated, the statement added.

An Egyptian army serviceman was killed in the incident.
An Nahar adds:
A suicide kaboom claimed by the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....

IS claims suicide bombing that killed 2 in Egypt's Sinai

[Ynet] The Islamic State group has grabbed credit for a suicide kaboom that killed two people, including a civilian, and maimed three in Egypt's restive northern Sinai Peninsula.

The Death Eater group says in a statement on an IS-affiliate website that an IS Death Eater named Abu Omar El-Seedy had detonated his boom vest near a military checkpoint at dawn on Thursday.

Egyptian security officials had said the bomber targeted an armored vehicle near the local market of the northern Sinai town of Sheikh Zuweid, killing a soldier and a civilian and wounding three soldiers.
