CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian officer and five soldiers were killed by a blast that hit their vehicle while they carried out a raid on a militant post in North Sinai on Thursday, the army said in a statement.

It said the explosion was from a bomb laid by militants but gave no further details or the exact location of the incident.

A separate security forces raid in North Sinai killed three Islamist militants, it said.
