CAIRO, April 23 (UPI) -- An Egyptian police commander was killed Wednesday in a Cairo suburb by a bomb placed under his car, security officers said.
Brig. Gen. Ahmed Zaki, a high-ranking officer in Egypt’s central security force, died in the fifth attack this week targeting police. The security force is prominent in the crackdown on supporters of former president Mohamed Morsi, who was ousted in July 2013. Zaki was the third police general killed in attacks in 2014.
