CAIRO - One Egyptian policeman was killed and one injured during a raid on an armed Islamist group suspected of involvement in pipeline bombings that have disrupted gas supplies to Israel and Jordan, the state news agency reported Monday.

The pipeline in the desert peninsula of Sinai has been attacked seven times this year as authorities have struggled to maintain control, especially since security was disrupted by the overthrow of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in February.

The policeman was shot dead when his unit approached the hiding place of two members of the armed Islamist group Al-Takfir Wa Al-Hijra (Excommunication and Exodus), news agency MENA reported, citing security sources.

Police arrested an Egyptian of Palestinian origin named Nour Mohamed who was accused of firing shots during the raid.
