Egyptian police killed four terrorists on Saturday in a shootout while conducting a raid in Ismailia governorate, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.

Security forces received a tip that terrorists involved in killing the leader of a local tribe were hiding in a deserted house in Ismailia's Galbana area.

The police found no identification documents on the suspects, who were in possession of four firearms.

On Thursday, unknown assailants shot dead Attalah Hamada Ouda at his house east of Ismailia and stole his car. Ouda, 61, was the leader of a North Sinai tribe.

Egypt is battling an Islamist insurgency that is mainly concentrated in the restive northern part of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

Militants have also struck elsewhere in the country, however, including the capital, often targeting police and army personnel.
