54 Egyptian police officers killed in firefight with militants

The exchange of fire began on late Friday in the Al-Wahat Al-Bahriya area in Giza govern orate, about 135 kilometers (84 miles) from the capital after security services moved in.

It was one of the largest losses of life for Egyptian security forces since militants began targeting government forces after the 2013 military ouster of Islamist president Mohammed Morsi, whose one-year rule proved divisive.

At least 54 policemen, including 20 officers and 34 conscripts, were killed when a raid on a militant hideout outside of Cairo escalated into an all-out firefight, authorities said on Saturday.

Egypt's interior ministry issued a statement on the raid on late Friday but didn't provide a death toll. The police also deployed aircraft to confront the militants late Friday, officials said.

No militant group immediately claimed involvement in the firefight.

Egypt's Grand Mufti Shawki Allam condemned the killing in a statement on Friday.
