A roadside bomb Sunday killed an Egyptian policeman and wounded four others on a highway on the southern outskirts of Cairo, the interior ministry said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but extremists have carried out many attacks on the police and army since the 2013 army toppling of president Mohamed Morsi.
Egypt is fighting a long-running insurgency by a local affiliate of the ISIL group in North Sinai province, in which hundreds of soldiers and policemen have been killed.
In past months, another militant group called Hasm has claimed responsibility for attacks in Cairo and the Nile Delta, most of them targeting policemen.
