TEHRAN (FNA)- Attacks in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula over the past 24 hours, mostly against soldiers, have killed at least four people, security officials said Tuesday.

Two people were killed and 10 others, including one soldier, were wounded when clashes erupted between troops and supporters of former President Mohamed Mursi in the town of Bir al-Abed, AFP reported.

Separately, one soldier was killed and two wounded when a rocket-propelled grenade struck an army checkpoint next to the regional capital of El-Arish.

Unknown gunmen near the Suez Canal killed another soldier, and three others were wounded in other attacks in the region.
