An alleged drug trafficker was shot and killed by police after an incident involving a shoot-out in Qaliubiya governorate on Monday.

Security forces attempted to pull over a vehicle at the entrance to Shibin Al-Qanater village, but the driver failed to stop, a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior said.

In the ensuing pursuit, the driver of the vehicle opened fire with a shotgun against security personnel, at which the police returned fire and killed him, the ministry said.
