IS attack on Sinai hotel kills judge, 3 others

AFP, CAIRO

AFP, CAIRO:  Islamic State group suicide bombers killed four people, including a judge, in an assault Tuesday on a North Sinai hotel hosting judges overseeing Egypt's parliamentary polls, the government and jihadists said.
The interior ministry said a judge, two policemen and a civilian were killed in the blasts at the Swiss Inn hotel in the town of El-Arish, the provincial capital of North Sinai where Islamist militants are waging an insurgency.
The Islamic State group's Egypt affiliate claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement posted online.
The first blast was triggered by a suicide car bomber followed by a militant who set off an explosive vest, the ministry said in a statement.
A third attacker sneaked inside a hotel room and shot dead the judge, the military said.
It said both bombers set off their explosives when police confronted them and traded shots with the attacker wearing the explosives vest.
