  • Police & ‘Smugglers’ Clash in Sahel Shootout


    Egypt is waking up to news this morning that five policeman have been killed in a shootout along the North Coast outside Porto Marina last night,  causing the Alex-Matrouh Rd to be closed for several hours.

    Four ‘militants’ – thought to be smuggling arms and weapons from Libya –  are also said to have been killed as images of a car engulfed in flames continue to circulate the internet.

    We spoke to people on the ground and everything is said to be calm, though conjecture and speculation is sure to continue throughout the week as we await more details about the clashes.
