JERUSALEM - A string of rockets was fired early Monday toward the Israeli resort city of Eilat, and one hit in neighboring Jordan, killing one person and wounding four, officials in the two countries said.

The rockets appeared to have been fired from the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, an Israeli police spokesman said, though Egypt denied the claim.

It was the second such attack this year.
