Egyptian state television is reporting renewed clashes between security forces and suspected Islamist militants in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.
The state-owned Nile News television reported clashes outside a police station in the north Sinai town of Al-Arish.
The clashes come a day after the military said an air strike killed 20 militants in a neighboring village.
The air strike -- the first in the peninsula for decades -- was launched after gunmen attacked a border-guard outpost near the border with Israel on August 5 and killed 16 soldiers.
Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi fired the country's intelligence chief and the North Sinai provincial governor following that attack.
