The charred remains of an armored vehicle are loaded onto a trick after a rocket-propelled grenade attack on a police checkpoint that killed a police colonel in El-Arish, Egypt, Friday, July 12, 2013. Officials say the attack happened early on Friday south the city of El-Arish when militants fired an RPG at an armored car at the checkpoint, killing 40-year-old Lt. Col. Ahmed Mahmoud. Islamic extremists have intensified attacks in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula after the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi, striking almost daily against the military and security forces, as well as targeting minority Christians. The violence raises the possibility of a military move, and the region’s Bedouin residents are fearing an increase in instability. (AP Photo/Muhammed Sabry) less
