Egypt: Unknown Assailants Shoot Dead Two Policemen in Giza

Cairo — The policemen were part of a force securing the Giza archeological area.

Policemen Hadi Hosni Hassan and Mohamed al-Sebai were stationed at the archaeological area when unidentified gunmen shot them dead, a security source told Aswat Masriya.

Security bodies immediately cordoned off and swept the area to find the perpetrators, a source at the Interior Ministry has said.

Between January 25, 2011 and February 13, 2014, 445 policemen were killed in confrontations with rioters and terrorists elements, the source added.
