CAIRO - At least sixteen police officers were killed in a shoot-out during a raid on a suspected militant hideout in Egypt's Western desert, two security sources said on Friday.

The sources said authorities were following a lead to an apartment thought to house eight suspected members of Hasm, a group which has claimed several attacks around the capital targeting judges and policemen since last year.

The number of dead was expected to rise, the sources said.
