A new militant group has claimed responsibility for two bombings in Cairo that targeted the Egyptian police on Friday and has vowed to carry out more attacks, underscoring the risk of a widening campaign of violence against the security forces.Shootings and bomb attacks targeting the security forces have become commonplace since last July, when the army deposed president Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood following mass protests against his rule.The state has declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group. Ajnad Misr emerged late last month, claiming responsibility for six attacks at the end of January, according to SITE.Several hundred members of the security forces have been killed in bombings and shootings since then.
