Egypt Dismantles Two Bombs Nearby to Cairo Blast

The Egyptian authorities dismantled two other bombs on Thursday, after a bomb blast took place earlier in Cairo's Nasr City, according to state television and an Interior Ministry statement.

The homemade bomb was planted at a small park at the intersection of Mostafa al-Nahhas and Youssef Abbas streets near the Azhar University.

The blast hit a public bus and injured five people who were immediately transferred to the hospital.

This attack comes two days after a car bomb explosion hit a security building in Mansoura, where 16 people were killed, mostly policemen.
