CAIRO (Reuters) - Militants killed two people including a policeman at a bank in Egypt's North Sinai region on Thursday and wounded several others, security sources said.

The militants fired a rocket and shot at police who were guarding the bank in the town of el-Arish, the sources said.

Police fired back but the militants fled the scene.

Egypt's interior ministry could not immediately be reached for comment.
