The interim government in Egypt said it would "decisively confront" those who carry out violent attacks and pledged to increase security measures, after gunmen killed six officers at a checkpoint in Cairo on Saturday morning, AFP reported early Sunday.

On Saturday morning, unidentified gunmen opened fire on an army police checkpoint on the outskirts of Cairo, killing the officers, Egypt's state TV and state news agency reported.

There have been several attacks on security forces since the army ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi last July and about 300 security officers have been killed.
