CAIRO: An Egyptian police captain was killed Monday in a shootout on the southern outskirts of Cairo with alleged supporters of deposed Islamist president Mohammed Morsi, the Interior Ministry said.

Since the military ousted Morsi last July, Egypt has been rocked by near-daily violence with hundreds of police dead in militant attacks and more than 1,000 Morsi supporters killed in street clashes with security forces.
