Supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi launched attacks on police posts in two provinces on Thursday, killing at least two policemen, security officials said.

A 21-year-old policeman was fatally shot in the chest and arm in the North Sinai town of Al-Arish after gunmen attacked the Police Club.

Another policeman was killed in an attack on a police station in the central city of Assiut.
