Egypt's police foil bomb attack in Giza: Ministry
Published in Ahram Online on 15 - 02 - 2019

Egypt's interior ministry said the police foiled a bomb attack in a busy area in Giza on Friday.
Explosive experts defused a home-made bomb that aimed to target a security checkpoint near El-Istiqama mosque in Giza on the outskirts of Greater Cairo, the ministry said in a statement.
A security official told Ahram Online that two improvised bombs were thrown from a bridge at members of a security checpoint in the area. One civilian was injured by shrapnel, he added.
Al-Ahram Arabic news website published phoos from the site showing smashed glass on the street, a shattered car window and a damaged apartment building door.
The ministry blamed “members of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood group” for the attack.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
Egypt designated the Brotherhood a terrorist organisation in late 2013, months following the ouster of its Islamist president Mohamed Morsi after mass protests against his rule.
