Cairo: Attackers on Friday fired a
rocket-propelled grenade at state security headquarters in the
Egyptian town of El-Arish, torching the building but causing
no injuries, a security source said.

The attack in the northern Sinai town, near the Egyptian
border with the Gaza Strip, came as anti-government protesters
massed in Cairo for an 11th day of demonstrations aimed at
ousting President Hosni Mubarak.

Last week, militants fired two rockets at a police
station in the northern Sinai town of Sheikh Zuweid, but
missed it, hitting a nearby medical centre.

A police station three kilometres (two miles) from the
town was also targeted last week in a separate rocket attack,
which hit the building and set it on fire.
