Cairo - Five suspected Islamic extremists and an Egyptian policeman were killed yesterday in a shoot-out in Sohag in southern Egypt. The clash occurred when police raided a Muslim hideout a day after radicals opened fire on a tour bus nearby, killing a Spanish boy.

The extremist Islamic Group threatened to attack participants in next month's UN population conference in Cairo, saying the meeting will deal with 'immoral' subjects, including abortion. AP
