Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi says the country is facing a threat to its existence from jihadists after the military suffered the biggest loss of life in decades in attacks in Sinai.

At least 31 soldiers were killed in two attacks on Friday, the deadliest bomb blast near the town of El-Arish.

A three-month state of emergency has been declared in parts of the Sinai Peninsula, and Egypt's Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip was closed.

There will be three days of mourning.

No group has said it carried out the attacks, which came as the army continued an offensive against jihadists in northern Sinai.
