Gunmen killed two Egyptian policemen Sunday near Ismailia on the west bank of the Suez Canal, security sources said, hours before ousted president Mohamed Morsi was to go on trial.
A third policeman was wounded when the armed men fired automatic weapons from their car toward the officers' checkpoint, the sources said.
Medical sources confirmed the toll.
Since the army deposed and arrested Morsi, Egypt's first democratically elected president, on July 3, near daily attacks have claimed dozens of lives among police and soldiers across the country.
