Security officials in Egypt began to interrogate eight men suspected of belonging to a terrorist cell in Nasr City, the Egyptian media reported.

The suspects are accused of possessing weapons and plotting to assassinate public figures with the aim of overthrowing Egypt's government.

Egyptian police killed one terror suspect and arrested eight others during a raid last Wednesday on an apartment in Nasr City, east of Cairo. Security forces suspect that the alleged terrorist cell planned to attack Egypt's interior ministry in Cairo and to assassinate political figures, according to Egyptian media reports.
