Egypt: Israeli rocket kills 3 policemen

Aug. 19, 2011 2:29 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 19, 2011 6:07 P.M.)
EILAT, Israel (AFP) -- Three Egyptian policemen have been killed after an Israeli plane fired a rocket near the border at militants it was tracking following earlier attacks, security officials said Thursday.

Egypt's official MENA news agency quoted a military official as saying that two policemen were killed when the Israeli aircraft opened fire near the Rafah border town with the Palestinian Gaza Strip.

Security officials said the incident took place south of Rafah, along the border with Israel.

They identified the Israeli aircraft as an Apache gunship that had been tracking the militants who attacked two buses, a civilian car and a military jeep in the coastal city of Eilat hours earlier.
