Unknown assailants killed a man and injured two early on Saturday in an attack that targeted a policeman in the Egyptian canal city of Port Said, Hay El-Zohour district.

The deceased, 46 year-old Mohamed Mosaad, was shot from the back while sitting at a cafe where the policeman was targeted.

The policeman, 38 year-old Ayman Saad, is in critical condition after suffering three bullet wounds to his chest and stomach and one in the foot, according to Al-Ahram’s Arabic news site.

A third man, Ahmed Morsi, 22, was shot in the right thigh.           

Investigations to determine the identity of the assailants are ongoing.

Attacks on security personnel across Egypt have notably increased since the violent crackdown in August on two Islamist sit-ins in Cairo and Giza, which left hundreds dead.

According to the Egyptian Ministry of Interior, 121 policemen have been killed since the sit-in dispersals.
