Three workers in an electrical company were killed and three of their colleagues were injured when the vehicle transporting them to work hit an IED in the west of Al Arish city in North Sinai, state news agency MENA reported.

The injured were transferred to Al Arish military hospital.

On Saturday evening, five police conscripts were killed when militants ambushed their vehicle and shot them dead in Al Arish.

Hundreds of security forces in North Sinai have been killed in attacks by Islamic militants in the past three years since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.
