Security forces on Tuesday killed three people wanted for the bombings in a Sinai resort that killed 21 people two months ago, police said. The police shot dead Ibrahim Hameed Freg, his brother Sami and Ibrahim's wife Fawziya Musleh at a hide-out in a farm in the desert near El Arish, said the chief detective of North Sinai police, Gen. Adel Fawzi. Fawzi said the fugitives opened fire on the police officers as they were approaching the hide-out, and they returned fire. He did not say whether any police were wounded in the raid.
