Egyptian security carried out a raid on Tuesday night against an armed group of militants in the Al Amireya neighbourhood in East Cairo.

The Egyptian Interior Ministry said the raid ended about 9pm local time and all militants in the group were killed.

It said one Egyptian security officer was killed in the operation.

The operation, against a “terror cell” taking shelter in a residential building, lasted four hours, Al Arabiya news reported.

"National security received a tip-off that there was an apartment full of terrorists," a security source told AFP. "An exchange of gunfire ensued."

The source said two men were admitted to hospital, including the police officer before he died.

Videos on social media showed a building in the Al Amireya district being surrounded by security forces while a barrage of gunfire could be heard in the background.

Security forces have been fighting an insurgency led by ISIS in the Sinai Peninsula in north-east Egypt since February 2018.
