Egyptian policeman killed in drive-by shooting
« on: December 14, 2014, 05:15:04 PM »

Gunmen killed an Egyptian policeman and wounded another in a drive-by shooting in the Sinai Peninsula on Sunday, security and medical officials said.

The attack occurred near a police post in the town of El-Arish, scene of frequent attacks by Islamist militants on security forces, as the two policemen made their way to work.

Egypt's military has been battling an insurgency on the peninsula since it overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year and cracked down on his supporters.

The government declared a state of emergency in parts of North Sinai after a suicide attack on 24 October near El-Arish killed 30 soldiers in the deadliest assault on security forces since Morsi's ouster.

Militant groups claim their attacks are in retaliation for a government crackdown targeting Morsi's supporters that has left hundreds dead and thousands jailed.
