Cairo: Six alleged militants, who were planning an attack on security checkpoint at the Al-Arish in Egypt, have been killed on Thursday by security forces.

Two local residents also got injured when the Egyptian forces resorted to firing to impede the militants from attacking the security checkpoint. They have been immediately taken to the hospital.

The militants were preparing for the attack behind the airport when the security forces sensed their preperations.

Militants have been carrying attacks in Egypt against security forces since Islamist president Mohamed Morsi was ousted by the military in July which further led to massive protest across the nation.
