(AP) Egyptian officials say a massive explosion, possibly from a car bomb, has hit the security headquarters in a southern Sinai town, killing two people and wounding 48.


The security officials say the attack Monday in the town of al-Tour significantly damaged the four-story building and set off small fires.


They say the death toll was likely to rise as rescue workers and residents search for victims under the rubble. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.


Islamic militants, some with al-Qaida links, have been targeting security forces daily in northern Sinai in what has increasingly become a full-fledged insurgency.


But the southern part of the strategic peninsula, which includes the popular diving resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, has been peaceful.
