A suicide bomber rammed a vehicle packed with explosives into a police base in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Tuesday, killing a civilian and wounding 24 policemen, security and health officials said.

The attack took place in the North Sinai provincial capital of El-Arish, minutes after a nighttime curfew was lifted at 6:00 am (0400 GMT). Militants have stepped up attacks in the peninsula since the army ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
