Egypt hit by string of robberies
 
 
 


CAIRO (AFP) - Gunmen raided a money transfer company in Cairo on Wednesday, state news agency MENA reported, bringing to five the number of armed robberies in less than a week in a country previously unaccustomed to such incidents. Two men attacked the Super Service company in the east of the Egyptian capital, seizing 800,0000 Egyptian pounds ($130,000/99,000 euros), MENA said. On Tuesday, a post office in Helwan, south of Cairo, was raided by individuals who fired guns in the air before making off with 150,000 pounds ($25,000), while a Cairo office of British banking giant HSBC was attacked by gunmen a day earlier.
