Eight members of police service gunned down in Helwan

Digital editions of all major daily newspapers are leading this morning with news that eight members of the police service were killed last night in Helwan when masked gunmen opened fire on what appears to have been the microbus in which they were traveling. Police sealed-off the entrances and exits to Helwan late on Saturday night and were pursuing the assailants. There was no news of arrests at dispatch time this morning. Al Masry Al Youm and Al Shorouk have more. Al Ahram’s breaking news website puts the death toll at nine.
