CAIRO (Reuters) - Gunmen killed four security personnel in an armed attack in Saqqara, 22 miles south of Cairo, 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 checkpoint in Saqqara, a Cairo suburb and site of some of Egypt's oldest pyramids. Egypt is fighting an Islamist insurgency that has been targeted mostly at security personnel. (Reporting by Ahmed Hassan and Omar Fahmy; Writing by Asma Alsharif; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
