CAIRO: A low-ranking policeman was injured Thursday morning in a shooting at a church in Giza, Youm7 reported.
Unidentified assailants in a vehicle reportedly opened fire on guards outside a church located in Giza’s southern district of Faisal injuring the policeman.
The perpetrators fled the scene while the injured policeman was transferred to the hospital.
Militant attacks on police and army personnel as well as state institutions have been recurrent since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 following a mass protest against his rule.
During the Palm Sunday celebrations in April, a policeman and two civilians were injured in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria after a church was attacked by gunmen on a motorbike.
