CAIRO: Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi pledged "retribution" after two policemen were killed defusing bombs outside his palace Monday, almost a year after he overthrew his predecessor.

The prerecorded speech by Sisi was aired on television channels to mark June 30, the day millions protested against then Islamist president Mohammad Morsi, prompting the army led by Sisi to topple him three days later.
