3 Egyptian police officers killed in shoot-out with jihadists

Three Egyptian police officers were killed and eight others injured in a shoot-out during a raid on a suspected terrorist hideout in Giza, southwest of Cairo, two security sources said on Friday.

According to Reuters, the sources said authorities were following a lead to an apartment thought to house eight suspected members of Hasm, a group which has claimed several attacks around the capital targeting judges and policemen since last year.
