CAIRO, Egypt, AP – Two suicide bombers struck Wednesday just outside a base that houses a multinational peacekeeping force in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula, wounding at least two foreign troops and two Egyptian policemen, security officials and Egypt’s official news agency reported.

The attackers hit just two days after a triple bombing that killed 24 at Egypt’s Sinai resort city of Dahab on the Gulf of Aqaba.

Wednesday’s attack happened just south of the Rafa border crossing to the Gaza Strip and wounded one New Zealander and one Norwegian attached to the multinational force, officials said.
