At least 200 people have been killed after suspected militants set off a bomb and opened fire at a mosque in Egypt's restive northern Sinai province.
The attack on Friday targeted supporters of the security forces attending prayers there, two eyewitnesses and a security source said.
Eyewitnesses at Al Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abed, near Arish city, told local media ambulances rushed to take the wounded to nearby hospitals.
- Suspected militants set off a bomb and opened fire at a mosque in northern Sinai province
- At least 200 people dead, health ministry spokesperson says
- No claim of responsibility, but Egyptian military has been fighting Isis insurgency in Sinai for three years
The attack is the largest single targeting of Egyptian civilians and the first on a large mosque congregation since the Isis affiliate began its campaign of violence against the state following the military's 2013 overthrow of an elected but divisive Islamist president.
God be with the victims and their families.
