Egypt: Egyptian forces kill 2 militants in clashes in upscale Cairo area


Egyptian security forces killed two suspected Islamist militants during clashes in the upscale Cairo district of Maadi on Wednesday, security sources said.

Egypt is trying to clamp down on Islamist militants who stepped up attacks after the army toppled president Mohammed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013. They have mostly targeted soldiers and police, but also attacked civilians.

Although raids against militants are common in Egypt, they are rare in neighbourhoods like Maadi, a leafy suburb which is home to a large foreign community and some of Egypt’s elite.

Two police were wounded in the clashes and another two militants escaped with security forces in pursuit, security sources said.
