    Gunmen killed five soldiers in Suez in one of a series of attacks throughout Egypt on Monday. Also on Monday, five others were killed and more than 40 were injured in a car-bomb attack in the town of al-Tour in southern Sinai, and a rocket-propelled grenade hit a satellite station in a Cairo suburb.

Monday’s attacks followed Sunday’s violent clashes that left 50 people dead, mainly in Cairo.
