Four armed men seized a car containing the weapons and personal belongings of five police officers who were driving from North Sinai to Cairo.
The incident took place five kilometers from a toll station on the Cairo-Ismailia Desert Road. The four armed men, who were riding in a truck without license plates coming from the opposite direction, reportedly forced the police to get out of the car.
A report filed to Major General Ali Abu Zeid, head of the criminal investigation, said that the car belonged to one of the policemen and that the five officers were returning from work to Cairo.
The Ismailia security chief is investigating the incident and police in al-Tal al-Kabeer are intensifying efforts to apprehend the assailants.
