A police officer was killed in central Sinai late Saturday while chasing a suspicious vehicle after his armoured car turned over.
Security said the tire of the officer’s armoured vehicle popped during the chase. Officials did not provide information on the suspect being chased.
Sinai has been the stage of battles between security forces and extremist militants since the ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi in 2013.
