Cairo - A suicide bomber killed an Egyptian soldier in the Sinai Peninsula on Friday, as a second blast hit a bus wounding five civilians on a nearby road, security officials said.

The five wounded in the attack in the Al-Tur district of South Sinai province were all Egyptians, the officials said.

Militants have killed scores of soldiers and police in the Sinai since the army ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi last July.

Security forces have deployed in strength to protect the resorts along the South Sinai coast that are a major plank of the country's battered tourism sector.
