At least four militants died Wednesday when a car, rigged with gas canisters and carrying explosive belts, detonated in Egypt's Sinai peninsula. The bomb exploded near a police traning camp. The attack happened just hours after the head of Egypt's military called for rallies to back efforts to quell violence unleashed by the overthrow of Mohamed Mursi. Army sources estimate there are around 1,000 armed militants in Sinai. Gunmen have attacked security checkpoints and other targets on an almost daily basis since July 3, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens of others.
