CAIRO - Egypt may install security cameras at tourist sites to deter militants from targeting visitors, the Interior Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday, just hours after suspected Islamists mounted another fatal attack on police.

"There's a security plan in place in tourist areas that will maintain stability in these areas and there is complete coordination," said the spokesman, Hany Abdel Latif."We expected all these problems because we are in a war against terrorism," he said without elaborating.

Al Qaeda-inspired militants have targeted police and soldiers almost daily in the Sinai Peninsula since the army toppled Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in early July.
