36 Muslim Brotherhood detainees gassed to death in prison van, 25 policeman killed in separate attack in lawless Sinai

Dozens of Muslim Brotherhood supporters have been killed in Cairo after police fired tear gas into a minivan transporting prisoners who apparently started a riot.
Officers killed 36 detainees last night while trying to free a prison guard who had been taken hostage, according to Egyptian security officials.

The chaos in the country continued this morning as militants killed 25 policemen execution-style in an ambush in the Sinai Peninsula. The attack apparently took place this morning as two minibuses carrying off-duty officers were driving through a village near the border town of Rafah.
