Islamic State claims attack that kills five members of Egypt’s security forces

“Islamic State’s Egypt affiliate said in a statement on a social media site it carried out an attack in North Sinai on military checkpoints that killed five members of the country’s security forces on Saturday. The deaths occurred when several mortar rounds hit two checkpoints, security sources said earlier. North Sinai is the epicenter of an insurgency waged by militants who support Islamic State, the ultra-hardline Sunni group which controls large parts of Iraq and Syria and has a presence in Egypt’s neighbor Libya.”
