Security Forces Abort Attempt to Blow Up Giza Railway

Bomb squads aborted on Friday an attempt to blow up the Giza railway using five gas cylinders, Giza’s General Investigation Directorate said.

The directorate received a report from Giza residents saying that an unidentified man driving a motorcycle has placed gas cylinders at the railway next to the Saqiet Mekki underground metro station, the state-run news agency MENA said.

Bomb experts found five gas cylinders wrapped in blankets and connected to a manual detonator as well as three jerry cans filled with 60 litres of petrol, the agency added.
