Attack on bus in Sinai region of Egypt leaves three dead and 17 wounded

Early today in the North Sinai province, a militant group fired rocket-propelled grenades at a bus carrying workers on the road to el-Arish.

Travellers should be aware that since the ousting of the former president, attacks on security checkpoints and other targets have occurred almost daily. Many countries warn their citizens to avoid non-essential or all travel to the Sinai area, except for some resorts.

See Sitata's Safety and Security Section as well as Advisories for Egypt. Always check your own country's recommendations for travel, since safety travel warnings may differ depending on your country's relationship with the country you will be visiting.
