Islamists Kill 3 Egyptian Police in the Sinai

Constitutional court road closed ahead of protest

Islamist gunmen on Wednesday shot dead three Egyptian policemen in the Sinai Peninsula, where jihadist radicals have been attacking security forces for several years, AFP reported, citing the Egyptian interior ministry.

The three policemen, including a colonel, were riding a pick-up truck in North Sinai’s El-Arish when attackers in a passenger car shot at them and fled, the ministry said in a statement.

The attack came only a few days after two policemen were killed in a roadside bombing at the entrance to the same town.

Egypt’s military has been fighting an Islamist insurgency in the peninsula, with dozens of policemen and soldiers killed since the overthrow of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year and the army’s crackdown on his supporters.

The government declared a state of emergency in parts of North Sinai after an October 24 suicide attack near El-Arish killed 30 soldiers, the worst since Morsi’s ouster.
