Egypt: Police Trap, Kill Top Extremist Militants
Local Editor

The Egyptian police announced that it has killed two leaders of the Hasam militia in a shootout after intercepting them as they relocated to a new hideout on Cairo's outskirts.

Egypt: Police Trap, Kill Top Extremist Militants

According to the interior ministry, the two militants were "prominent leaders" of the Hasam group -- an extremist movement the government accuses of having links to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.

The militia ambushed a police convoy and killed three officers in May, in an attack the group claimed at the time and which the government has since also blamed on them.

Authorities learned that some of the group's leaders were "about to move their equipment and weapons used in terrorist operations," the ministry said.

They were planning to relocate to the hideout in a newly constructed area of New Cairo, outside the city's main ring road, said the ministry.

Security forces acting on this information set up checkpoints on roads going to the area, it said in a statement.

A suspect car approached one of them before "its passengers opened fire" on police and the officers shot back, killing the two militants.

The two were identified as students aged 24 and 21 who were "among the most prominent leaders in the Hasam terrorist group," the ministry said.

In the vehicle police found seven automatic weapons, two other firearms, a large amount of ammunition, masks and radio communications equipment.

The ministry did not say when the shootout took place, only disclosing that the group had been planning to move locations on Tuesday.

The government says Hasam is linked to the Brotherhood movement of former president Mohamed Morsi who was overthrown by the army in 2013.
