Cairo — At least three police officers have been wounded after two bombs went off in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

Local media report that the bombs targeted police vehicles stationed near a bridge.

The blasts were heard at around 9:45 am local time (0745 GMT) in the Giza area and were around two minutes apart.

Since the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi by the military in 2012, armed groups have intensified their attacks in Egypt.

Anti-military protests are expected in parts of the capital later, after Friday prayers.
