An ISIS-affiliated militant group in Egypt, Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis, claimed responsibility for killing four policemen in Giza on Saturday.

Masked assailants on a motorcycle opened fire on a police vehicle, killing those inside on the Sakkara Road, south of Cairo near the Giza pyramids.

Egypt has been battling an Islamist insurgency, mainly based in the North Sinai region, which has killed hundreds of police and troops since the 2013 ouster of Islamist former president Mohamed Morsi.

Militant group Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis, which has sworn allegiance to the self called, Islamic State group, has claimed responsibility for some of the deadliest attacks, including the downing of a Russian passenger plane last month over Sinai, killing all 224 people on board.
