CAIRO, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- At least one people was killed and nine others were injured on Monday in clashes between Egypt's armed forces and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood group in northern Sinai region, security sources told Xinhua.
The clashes erupted when several Islamists blocked the international road in Bea'r el-Aabd district in northern Sinai, security source told Xinhua.
The armed forces asked those protesters who called for reinstating ousted president Mohamed Morsi to open the road but the latter refused and opened fire shoot randomly, wounding one soldier.
The clashes also left one people killed, and eight others injured, including a 60-year man and a child, the source added.
Elsewhere in central Sinai, two armed officers were wounded seriously when unknown militants in a jeep attacked a security checkpoint there.
Security situation in Sinai has deteriorated since the ouster of Morsi in July, as militants launched almost daily attacks against security forces in recent weeks. The army then intensified operations to uproot terrorists and hardline Jihadist movements in the peninsula.
