A roadside bomb in Egypt's restive northern Sinai Thursday wounded 20 policemen traveling in a bus and an armored personnel carrier, security officials said, the latest attack in the troubled part of the peninsula where Egyptian forces are battling an insurgency.The bombing in the provincial capital of El-Arish came just a week after one of the most vicious attacks on Egyptian troops in the region, in which militants launched sustained, coordinated attacks on a northern Sinai town, military checkpoints and installations that drew a swift offensive and aerial bombardment from government aircraft. In that attack, at least 17 army soldiers were killed, according to Egypt's military, although other branches of security put the toll much higher.The assault was claimed by an ISIS affiliate. The military said its troops killed over 200 militants since the attack and posted photographs of their bodies, most of them in military-style fatigues.
