8 POLICEMEN AMBUSHED & KILLED IN CAIRO
Gunmen shot dead eight plainclothes Egyptian policemen in the Helwan district south of Cairo, the interior ministry said Sunday 05/08/2016.
The policemen were traveling in a minivan when the assailants in a pickup truck blocked their path and sprayed the vehicle with automatic rifle fire, the ministry said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility but jihadists, including Islamist State group militants, have killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers in attacks, mostly in the Sinai Peninsula but also in and around Cairo.
