Gunmen Kill 1 Policeman, Wound 2 at Cairo Church

Gunmen shot dead a policemen guarding a church in Cairo on Tuesday, and wounded two others, security sources said, hours after another attack claimed the life of a police general.

The shootings come a day after Egypt's military backed its chief Field Marshall Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who led the ouster of Islamist president Mohammed Morsi, to run for the presidency.

Security sources said gunmen in a car opened fire at the policemen guarding a church in western Cairo, killing one and wounding two. One assailant was arrested while two others fled on foot.
