Five Killed by Masked Gunmen
By Harold Hutchison

Masked gunmen attacked Egyptian policemen, killing five. The violence came after a new constitution was approved by 98% of the voters in a referendum.

According to a report by VOA News, the attack took place about 60 miles south of Cairo. Islamists, like the Moslem Brotherhood, have carried out many of the attacks on security forces since the military ousted Mohammed Morsi, the candidate of the Moslem Brotherhood, from power last year.

Morsi is currently awaiting trial on charges, while the Egyptian government has been cracking down on the Moslem Brotherhood. Weapon shipments have been placed on hold, including F-16 fighters.
