CAIRO (AP) -- Egypt's state news agency says a roadside bomb has killed two police and wounded three conscripts in the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula.

MENA quoted an Interior Ministry statement saying that the explosion happened Sunday.

Egypt has been hit with a wave of militant attacks that intensified after the military's ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in 2013. An Islamic State affiliate based in northern Sinai has claimed most of the attacks.
