A suicide bomb attack has killed 10 Egyptian soldiers at a checkpoint in northern Sinai, security sources say.

Two vehicles were detonated while passing a checkpoint in an area between Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

​Egypt faces an Islamist insurgency led by ISIL in North Sinai, where hundreds of soldiers and police have been killed since 2013, when the military ousted Islamist president Mohamed Mursi after mass protests.
