President Adly Mansour decided Wednesday to increase policemen's risk compensation. The compensation will be set at 30 percent of the basic salary.

The decision is applicable starting 1 March.

Police have increasingly become a target of militant attacks since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.  

Tens of low-ranking policemen have held intermittent strikes demanding better wages, compensation for risks they are subjected to, and better working conditions.
