CAIRO: Gunmen have shot dead two Egyptian policemen in the bastion of the Islamic State jihadist group in the Sinai Peninsula, the interior ministry said.
“A police captain and a policeman died of their wounds after unknown assailants shot them” late Saturday in the North Sinai provincial capital El-Arish, the ministry said in a statement. The area is a stronghold of the Egyptian affiliate of the Islamic State (IS) group that calls itself “Sinai Province”.
The jihadists have stepped up attacks which they say are in retaliation for a bloody crackdown on supporters of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi following his overthrow by the army in 2013.     —AFP
