Protesters belonging to ultraconservative groups in Sinai have stormed a camp for the UN multinational peacekeepers in the town of Sheikh Zuwayed. They brought down the flag and placed a black Islamic banner with the words "There's no God but Allah, Mohammed is the Prophet of Allah."

The peacekeepers responded with firing on the attackers, said Al Jazeera's Rawya Rageh. At least one man is believed to be injured.

Egyptian security was nowhere to be seen, though army vehicles were reportedly headed to the area.
