World Bulletin / News Desk

A shadowy group on Wednesday claimed responsibility for the killing of a senior Egyptian police officer.

In a Facebook statement, the Agnad Masr (Egypt's soldiers) group said that it had carried out the bomb attack that killed senior police officer Ahmed Zaki.

A member of the anti-riot police division, Zaki was killed in the 6 October City, west of capital Cairo, while a soldier was injured when an explosive charge planted under his car detonated.

Agnad Masr claimed responsibility for three bomb blasts outside Cairo University earlier this month, in which a senior police officer waskilled and five soldiers were injured.

Egypt has seen a spate of attacks on police and army personnel since the military ousted elected president Mohamed Morsi last July.
