A missile has hit a tourist bus near the Egypt-Israeli border crossing at Taba. Early reports suggest that at least three people have died following the explosion which happened after the bus entered Egypt from Israel.
Security sources said at least three tourists and the vehicle's driver were killed on the bus which is believed to have been carrying 30 tourists of various nationalities.
The attack comes amid rising attacks by Islamist militants based in the largely lawless Sinai peninsula.
