Interior Minister Ahmed Gamal Eddin sacked on Sunday 4/11/2012 security chief of North Sinai Major General Ahmed Bakr, and appointed his deputy Samih Ahmed Beshadi instead of him.

This came during the minister's meetings Sunday with police leaderships in North Sinai to discuss the security situation in the governorate, following the attack against a security patrol yesterday, which killed three conscripts and injured another.
