A suspected jihadist car bomb has killed at least 26 Egyptian soldiers at a checkpoint in Sinai.

The attack took place near El Arish, the main town in the north of the restive peninsula. 3 more died in a shooting in the town itself.

The bomb blast is one of the deadliest attacks in Sinai for months. At least 28 more people were injured.

The army has been fighting a campaign against Sinai-based militants, who have carried out a string of attacks there.
