CAIRO: A Cairo court ordered on Saturday a 15 day renewed detention of police officer pending further investigations over charges of attempted murder of a micro bus driver following a traffic dispute, Youm7 reported.

Captain Ahmed Samir, who works at the General Directorate for Information and Documentation, was suspended and referred to investigations last week after shooting at a driver, for reportedly obstructing his way while driving near a bus station in Heliopolis district, according to a Wednesday statement by the Interior Ministry.
