Egypt's Sinai Hit With Grenades

Despite signs Cairo was returning to normal Monday, violence erupted on Egypt's Sinai Peninsula Monday, as local police barracks were hit with grenades. It was unclear who was behind the grenade attack in the town of Rafah, on the border of the Gaza Strip, although state TV blamed religious extremists and a local Bedouin leader said it may have been the result of ongoing violence by Bedouins themselves. Meanwhile, Cairo, the site of many of last week’s protests, struggled to get back to work after weeks of clashes. A U.S.-based human right said Monday that the death toll of the long uprising has climbed to 297.
