CAIRO, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Nine Egyptian policemen were killed and four others injured in a terror attack in the country's North Sinai province, state-run Ahram newspaper reported on Monday.


According to Ahram, a roadside bomb targeted a security patrol in Arish city in North Sinai, leaving nine policemen dead and four others injured.


Security force exchanged fire with a number of terrorist elements in the surroundings of the blast, Ahram said.


Meanwhile, official MENA news agency reported that a number of terrorists were killed in fire exchange after the blast. However, reports on the number of casualties among terrorists are yet available.


Egypt has been fighting against a wave of terror activities that killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers since the military toppled former Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 in response to mass protests against his one-year rule and his currently outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.


Terror attacks in Egypt used to focus on police and military men in North Sinai before spreading nationwide and targeting the Coptic minority as well, with most of them claimed by a Sinai-based group loyal to the regional Islamic State (IS) militant group.


The Egyptian military and police have killed hundreds of militants and arrested a similar number of suspects as part of the country's anti-terror war.
