CAIRO —

Egyptian security officials say one army officer and four soldiers were killed in a drive-by shooting east of Cairo.

The officials say the five were on patrol in a pickup truck when masked gunmen in another vehicle opened fire at them in an area west of the Suez Canal city of Ismailia on Monday.

The officials say the killed officer was a lieutenant. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The drive-by attack and a blast earlier on Monday that hit a security headquarters building in southern Sinai, killing two and wounding nearly 50 people, come a day after at least 51 people were killed in clashes between security forces and supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.
