Policemen Killed In Clashes With Terrorists In Egypt

People carry on Saturday the coffin of police captain Ahmed Fayez, who was killed in a raid about 84 miles southwest of Cairo.

The Security Council underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice and urged all states to cooperate actively with the Egyptian government and all relevant authorities in this regard.

Following a lead, they were deployed to a militant camp where eight suspected members of the extremist Hasm Movement were believed to be hiding, said security sources.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was scheduled yesterday to attend events in the northern town of El Alamein on Egypt's Mediterranean coast to mark the 75th anniversary of the pivotal Allied World War II victory in the Battle of El Alamein.
