Egyptian security officials say a police driver kidnapped this week has been publicly shot dead in Sinai by suspected militants from the local Islamic State affiliate.
They say three militants and the policeman arrived Thursday at el-Arish's residential al-Masaeed district in a green pickup truck. The policeman, blindfolded with his arms and legs tied by a robe, was then brought out and shot twice in the head.
