Two suicide bombers struck just outside a Multinational Peacekeeping forces base in the Sinai near the Gaza border today and a separate blast hit a police checkpoint in the Nile Delta in the north of the country.

The string of explosions rattled Egypt just two days after terrorists exploded three bombs at a Sinai beach resort, killing 24 people, mostly Egyptians.

Security officials said the suicide attackers died in the strike on the peacekeeping base, and there were conflicting reports about wounded. It was not immediately known if there were casualties in the Nile Delta explosion.
