A senior Egyptian police officer was killed by a bomb placed under his car in a western Cairo suburb Wednesday, the latest in a series of targeted attacks on police and the military as Islamic militant groups keep up a campaign of violence since last summer's ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
Egyptian authorities on Sunday accused the ousted president's Muslim Brotherhood of forming a "military wing" to stage attacks on security forces in a southern province, as months-long street rallies by the group's supporters wane but low-level violence steadily rises.
Abdel-Latif said the cell was planning attacks on security forces.
Abdel-Latif said two suspects were arrested and are believed to be members of Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, one of Egypt's main militant groups.
