A police officer in North Sinai beat a CSF soldier to death in Arish on Friday.
Police said Captain Mohamed H. A., 26, beat soldier Ali Ahmed Hussein, 20, causing him serious injury that led to his death.
The soldier's body was sent to the morgue of the military hospital, in preparation for transfer to his home province of Sharqiya.
A state of resentment prevailed among other soldiers who called on the interior minister and security chief of North Sinai to launch a fair investigation into the incident and to prosecute the officer who caused the death of their colleague.
