Gunmen kill five Egypt police: interior ministry

CAIRO--Masked gunmen on motorbikes killed five Egyptian policemen when they opened fire on a checkpoint south of Cairo on Thursday, the interior ministry said.

The ministry said two policemen were wounded in the attack in the province of Beni Suef, which came two days ahead of the commemoration of the third anniversary of the 2011 uprising.

The assailants fled the scene.

Scores of policemen and soldiers have been killed since the military's overthrow of president Mohamed Morsi in July.
