Egyptian security forces backed by helicopters have clashed with militants after entering a town near Cairo.

 

Soldiers went into Kerdasa at about 03:30 GMT to target "criminal and terrorist hotbeds".

 

Militants shot dead Gen Nabil Farag, a senior policeman.

 

Eleven police officers were killed at a police station in Kerdasa last month, weeks after the overthrow of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July.
