CAIRO (Reuters) - A suicide car bomber killed a civilian and wounded 25 Egyptian policemen when he tried to ram his car into a police barracks in the city of al-Arish on Tuesday, security sources said, the latest in a string of attacks in the Sinai peninsula.

The violence comes days ahead of an investment conference in the resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, 340 km (210 miles) south of al-Arish, that Egypt hopes will project an image of stability and attract billions of dollars.
