Unknown gunmen shot dead four policemen in an attack on Saturday near Cairo, the Interior Ministry said. Masked assailants opened fire on police in an area between the famed Giza pyramids west of Cairo and the Saqarra pyramids to the south, the ministry said in a statement.

“Police are now combing the area in search for the perpetrators,” the ministry said on its official Facebook page. State-run newspaper al-Ahram reported online that the attackers had escaped the scene after seizing the guns of the four slain policemen.

No claim of responsibility for the attack was immediately made. The attack comes four days after seven people, including two judges, four policemen and a civilian, were killed in a bombing attack in the restive northern Sinai.

An affiliate of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group based in Sinai claimed responsibility for that attack. Scores of policemen and soldiers, mostly in the Sinai peninsula, have been killed since Egypt’s army overthrew President Mohamed Morsi in 2013. Attacks have also targeted police and government buildings in the capital, Cairo.
