At least three soldiers were killed in a twin attack on the army in Egypt's Sinai peninsula on Wednesday, a security official said.

Another eight were injured when a powerful explosion hit the military intelligence headquarters in the border town of Rafah, minutes before another blast went off at an army checkpoint.
