Egypt's Supreme judiciary court

CAIRO: Nine suspected militants were charged Saturday with killing a policeman and his friend when they attacked a police station in Giza’s al-Warraq district in May 2015, Youm7 reported.

The North Giza prosecution referred the defendants (five remanded and four fugitives) to Giza Criminal Court over accusations of establishing a terrorist cell, disturbing public security and peace, possessing firearms, and murdering a policeman and a civilian.

Security forces have arrested several “terrorist cells” targeted police and security personnel since the ouster of former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 and after the dispersal of pro-Muslim Brotherhood sit-ins of Rabaa and Nahada in August 2013.

Wide-scale attacks have targeted security forces in restive North Sinai where Islamic State affiliate took a footing.
