Egypt: Officer killed in Sinai drive-by shooting

Egypt’s Ministry of Interior says gunmen opened fire from a car and killed a senior police officer in northern Sinai.

The ministry says Maj. Gen. Khaled Kamal Osman was inspecting security positions late Wednesday in the city of el-Arish when the gunmen started shooting. Police fired back and the attackers fled the scene in a white car.

Security forces are cordoning off the area and searching for the perpetrators.
