Senior Egyptian Police Officer Shot in Latest Sinai Attack

A senior Egyptian security officer was shot by unknown assailants in north Sinai, an official said.

Lieutenant General Selim El-Gammal, the inspector-general for security in north Sinai, was severely injured and taken to hospital in al-Arish, the governorate’s administrative center, after attackers opened fire on his police vehicle, Mohamed Said, chief detective in the region, said by phone today.

Egypt launched an operation in the Sinai to root out extremists after 16 border guards were killed in August. There have been frequent attacks since then. The head of security in the region was fired after the Nov. 3 killing of three policemen prompted protests by low-rank security officials.
