Four Egypt police killed in Sinai attack: security

Members of the Egyptian security forces take position during an operation in the northern Sinai peninsula on August 08, 2012Gunmen killed four Egyptian policemen in the restive northern Sinai on Saturday, a security source said, with police blaming the attack on “takfiri” jihadist militants. Militants in the Sinai Peninsula have stepped up attacks on troops and police since the military ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last July. A security source said the men were killed “on the road between the towns of Rafah and El-Arish in north Sinai when takfiri elements forced the pick-up they were driving to stop, made the four policemen get out and opened fire on them”. Most militant attacks have hit the north of the mostly desert Sinai Peninsula, but they have also extended their reach to Cairo and the Nile Delta.
