CAIRO — Three masked gunmen on Wednesday stole the  car of Central Bank Governor Hisham Ramez in Cairo after killing his  bodyguard, the official MENA news agency reported.

Ramez’s bodyguard  and the driver were on their way to take him from home to work when  attackers chased them and opened fire on the governor’s car.

The  bodyguard was killed in a shootout with the assailants who forced the  driver to stop before seizing the car and fleeing the scene, MENA said.

Egypt  has been hit by a wave of crime and insecurity, including armed  robbery, since the ouster of president Hosni Mubarak two years ago.

On  Tuesday, dozens of masked men carrying wooden sticks and knives smashed  the glass front of a luxury hotel in Cairo before fleeing, according to  security official said. — AFP
