CAIRO : Unidentified gunmen shot dead an Egyptian policeman on Friday in the city of El-Arish in North Sinai, near the border with the Palestinian Gaza Strip, state television reported.

The policeman was shot in the head, security sources said.

Attacks on the army and police have intensified since the Egyptians uprising overthrew   President Mohamed Morsi, on July 3 after mass protests against his rule.

Since then, more than 100 members of the security forces have been killed in Sinai.

In Alexandria, dozens of people were hurt when pro-Morsi protesters clashed with residents, state TV reported.

Two explosive devices detonated near police check points on the outskirts of Cairo wounded two policemen, state news agency MENA said.
