A Palestinian security officer sits near the gate under Palestinian control at the Rafah border crossing with Egypt in the southern Gaza Strip, October 25, 2014Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said a suicide bombing, by a suspected jihadist, which killed 30 soldiers in the Sinai peninsula was carried out with "external support". Egypt imposed a state of emergency across parts of Sinai as the military pounded suspected jihadists after Friday's suicide car bombing. The suicide attack was the deadliest on Egyptian security forces since the army deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year, to the fury of his supporters. The state of emergency in the north and centre of the Sinai will remain in place for three months, the president's office said.
