On 14 April 2020, Reuters reported that an Egyptian policeman was killed in a gunbattle with suspected militants near the centre of Cairo.

Two private television stations broadcast what they called footage of the shooting, which Reuters was not immediately able to verify. The channels and two security sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that the gunmen were killed.

“Initial investigations show that the suspects were planning to carry out terrorist acts,” said one of the security sources.
