In one of the stranger moments in the fight against terrorism, Egyptian military forces thwarted an attempted car bomb attack in the northern Sinai region a few hours ago. The car had about 250 pounds of explosives packed inside and two terrorists driving it. It was stopped at a checkpoint and the soldiers/police noticed the bomb. The terrorists seemed to be arming the bomb, so an alert tank crew who happened to be at the checkpoint just drove their tank over the car with the terrorists still inside it. This gave about 50 people time to flee the scene before the bomb exploded. No one but the terrorists was killed or injured.
