​At least 13 Egyptians killed by suicide truck bomber in Sinai

Three floors of a police station in El Arish northern Sinai were blown out Monday by a suicide bomber driving a garbage truck packed with explosives into the checkpoint outside the building. Thirteen bodies have been pulled out of the rubble. The attack was followed by smaller explosives and men in black masks firing RPGs at the checkpoint. There were unconfirmed reports that a number of security personnel were seized and abducted by the gunmen. No organization claimed the attack, but it bore all the hallmarks of ISIS.
