Gunmen Kill Policeman in Cairo

  • VOA News

Egypt's Interior Ministry says gunmen on a motorcycle have shot and killed a police officer and wounded another officer.

The ministry says the police were guarding a bank in Cairo Saturday morning when the gunmen opened fire.

The assailants escaped and no one has claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the Sinai-based Ansar Beit al-Maqdis militant group has claimed responsibility for a string of similar attacks against police and army forces.
