Drone strike kills one in Egypt's Sinai
A rocket fired from the Sinai peninsula landed in southern Israel on Monday, with tensions high in the area following two deadly church bombings in Egypt.
Israeli authorities closed the border due to warnings of an "imminent" attack against tourists at Red Sea resorts in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.
The Sinai has traditionally been a popular destination for Israelis - especially during the upcoming Passover holiday.
The border closure appeared triggered by the bombing of Coptic churches on Sunday in the northern Egyptian cities of Tanta and Alexandria that killed at least 44 people and injured more than 100.
Israel's Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz said in a statement on Monday that there were indications that militants would potentially target tourists there.
Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The statement urged Israelis already in the Sinai to return home immediately, reiterating a travel advisory that Israel's Anti-Terrorism Directorate issued on March 27.

Israel signed a peace treaty with neighboring Egypt in 1979, and the two countries maintain close security cooperation.
As if to emphasize the warning, terrorists in the Sinai desert launched at rocket at southern Israel on Monday morning.
