One Killed In Cairo Bomb Blast

At least one person has been killed, following a bomb blast, on a main road in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

An explosive device detonated along a main road in Cairo on Friday as security forces passed by, killing at least one civilian passerby and injuring another, the interior ministry said on Facebook.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Egypt faces an Islamist insurgency led by Islamic State’s branch in North Sinai, where hundreds of soldiers and police have been killed. There have also been attacks in Cairo and other cities.
