In Egypt, Islamic militants attacked a checkpoint in the restive northern part of the Sinai Peninsula, killing at least 10 policemen.

Security officials say the attack took place as Muslims in the city of al-Arish were holding Eid prayers this morning.

Two officers and eight cons were killed. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

The officials say the militants attacked the checkpoint, seized an armoured vehicle to make their getaway but a warplane chased them in the desert, killing at least five.
