Gunmen killed four security personnel in an attack at a police checkpoint in Saqqara, near some of Egypt's historic pyramid sites, the Interior Ministry and three security sources said on Saturday. One security source said the two attackers were riding a motor bike when they opened fire using machine guns at a police checkpoint in Saqqara, 22 miles south of Cairo. The interior ministry said in a statement that security forces are scanning the area of the attack in search of the gunmen.
Strasbourg (France) (AFP) - Nearly 1,000 people thought to pose security risks have been prevented from entering France since stepped-up border controls were imposed ahead of the COP21 climate talks in Paris and took effect just hours before the November 13 attacks, the interior minister said Saturday.
North Korea appeared to conduct a submarine-launched ballistic missile test on Saturday but it ended in failure with no indication that the missile successfully ejected from the vessel and took off, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported. The test, if confirmed, follows a test-launch in May of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), which Pyongyang boasted as a success but has not been independently verified. "There is no identification of a missile taking flight and only fragments of a safety cover was observed so it's highly likely that the launch was a misfire," a South Korean government source was quoted as saying by Yonhap.
