One Egyptian police officer was shot dead on Friday by unknown armed assailants in the North Sinai city of El-Arish, security sources told Reuters.



The lieutenant was shot several times as he made his way home, they said.



Egypt has been hit by a wave of violence, mainly by militants based in the Sinai Peninsula against security forces, since the army ousted president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood last year.
