Three gunmen on a motorbike attacked police in al-Badrasheen area of Giza province, 30 km (20 miles) south of Cairo, killing two officers and three conscripts in the latest attack on Egyptian security forces battling an Islamist insurgency.

"A police officer who was near the site of the attack exchanged fire with the assailants forcing them to flee," the ministry statement said.
