Egypt: Bomb Explosion in Upper Qena Leaves No Injuries

Cairo — A homemade bomb exploded on Wednesday in Qena, near the courts complex of the Upper Egypt governorate, reported state television.

There were no injuries or losses reported.

State television added that the security forces foiled another grenade found in the same area.

Bomb explosions that target security forces have been recurring since the army's ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi last summer following mass protests against his rule.
