Policeman killed in clash with terrorists in Egypt

No group has claimed responsibility for killing a police officer in Tuesday or a civilian earlier this week.

:: An Egyptian policeman was killed on Tuesday in a clash with suspected terrorists in the southern province of Qena, security sources said.

Police had raided mountainous areas after receiving information that militants loyal to Islamic State were hiding there, the sources said. Two gunmen were killed before the exchange of fire that killed the policeman.

The clash comes days after a policeman and civilian were killed in a clash in the city of Esna, south of Luxor.

No group has claimed responsibility for either of the incidents.

Militant attacks on the security forces have been frequent in Egypt where the violence has mainly been concentrated in the Sinai Peninsula. The violence has also expanded to target Egypt’s Coptic Christians, the country’s largest minority.
