Gunmen Attack Police Station near Egypt's Border with Gaza
[An Nahar] Gunmen fired at a cop shoppe in Egypt's North Sinai on Saturday, but there were no casualties, security officials told AFP.
The gunnies, riding in two vehicles, shot up the Sheikh Zuwayyid cop shoppe near Egypt's border with the Gazoo Strip at dawn, the officials said.
"Police officials shot back and the exchange of fire continued until they (the gunnies) fled," they said, adding that "There were no injuries sustained during the exchange of fire."
The cop shoppe had not been operational for around 18 months after it was attacked during the uprising that toppled president Hosni Mubarak
