Cairo - Gunmen killed a senior Egyptian Interior Ministry official outside his home in Cairo on Tuesday, security officials said.

“General Mohamed Saeed, head of the technical office of the minister of interior, was targeted by gunmen inside a car who shot him and fled,” said one of the officials.

Islamist militants have stepped up attacks on security forces since the army toppled president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in July.

The Interior Ministry confirmed Saeed's killing.

He was an aide to Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim, who survived an assassination attempt last year. - Reuters
