An Egyptian soldier was killed Wednesday when a roadside bomb targeted an armoured vehicle in the restive Sinai Peninsula, medical and security officials said.

Four soldiers were also wounded in the attack near the north Sinai capital of El-Arish, the officials said.

Security forces are struggling to quell an Islamist insurgency that has killed scores of soldiers and policemen in the peninsula bordering Israel and the Palestinian Gaza Strip.

The attacks surged after Islamist president Mohamed Morsi was ousted last year, and the militants extended their reach to the Egyptian mainland with a series of bombings.
