An Egyptian policeman was killed on Friday in Egypt's Giza governorate at a railway crossing by unknown assailants, according to Al-Ahram's Arabic site.

The attackers are still at large, and it was not immediately clear how the policeman was killed.

Earlier Friday, two bombs were defused in Giza.

Security forces have been regularly targeted by militants since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.
