Three women killed in clashes in Egypt’s Sinai

Two women were killed by a rocket-propelled grenade while another died in crossfire between militants and security forces in two separate incidents in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, security and medical sources said on Sunday. Security sources blamed the violence on Sinai Province, Egypt’s most active militant network and the same group that claimed attacks on Thursday that killed at least 30 security personnel in the worst anti-government violence in months. In Rafah, along the border with the Palestinian Gaza Strip, militants launched a rocket-propelled grenade at a military checkpoint, but hit a house instead, killing two women, security and medical sources said.
