JERUSALEM, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Israeli police said they were preparing medics to treat any casualties from an explosion on Sunday in Egypt's Sinai peninsula near the border with Israel.

"The event is happening on the Egyptian side, and we are making our preparations," a police spokesman said. An Egyptian army source said an explosion on a tourist bus wounded four people. (Reporting by Dan Williams, Editing by Jeffrey Heller)
