Gunmen steal LE140,000 in Arish



Two were injured after gunmen opened fire on a vehicle filled with cash in the Rayesa neighborhood of Arish

on Wednesday, making off with LE140,000.

Civil Status Department staff were on route to their offices after picking up employee salaries from the bank when an SUV suddenly blocked the road.

People inside the SUV began firing at the vehicle, hitting a police officer in the foot and injuring a female Civil Service Department employee, before escaping.  

Both were taken to the Arish Public Hospital. The public prosecution is investigating the incident.
