Egypt : Police kill 10 terrorists in shoot-out.

(Cairo)  Ten terrorists were killed on Sunday morning during a police raid on their base.

An exchange of gunfire took place in the densely populated Cairo district of Ard el-Liwa and wounded five policemen, including two officers, one of the terrorists, died when an explosive device he intended to use against the policemen went off prematurely, killing him instantly. The terrorists were said to be members of Hasm, a breakaway Brotherhood faction that has targeted police and army officers in Cairo over the past year in a series of brazen attacks.

Police found bomb-making materials, assault rifles and ammunition as well as maps of vital state installations and computers in which instructions and details of future attacks were stored.
