PEDESTRIAN KILLED IN BOMB ATTACK TARGETING EGYPTIAN POLICE IN CAIRO

A roadside bomb, targeting Egyptian security forces in Cairo, killed a pedestrian and injured another on Friday, Egypt’s Interior Ministry said.

A homemade roadside bomb, went off near a group of policemen, in Ain Shams district of Cairo, killing a passerby and injuring another, the ministry said, in a press statement.

There were no casualties among the security forces, while the wounded was rushed to hospital.

Security forces cordoned the area and started efforts to arrest the perpetrators, the statement said.

Egypt has been fighting against a growing wave of anti-government terrorist attacks, since the military removed former Islamic president, Mohamed Morsi, in July 2013, following mass protests against his one-year rule.

Hundreds of security personnel were killed in anti-government attacks in the past three years, with a Sinai-based militant group loyal to the Daesh regional group, claiming responsibility for most of them.
