Cairo — Five people were injured when a bomb exploded on a train in Alexandria on Thursday night.
An explosion occurred in a passenger car on a train on the Abu-Qir line, injuring five, Alexandria's head of security told Aswat Masriya.
The injured were taken to hospitals for treatment and bomb squads are sweeping the area to ensure it is clear of explosives, Major General Amin Ezz al-Din said.
Earlier on Thursday, a bomb exploded outside a military hospital in Abassia, with no casualties, a security source said.
Another bomb also went off near a mosque in Giza, leaving no casualties, security sources told the state news agency MENA.
Thursday marks the first anniversary of former President Mohamed Mursi's ouster following mass protests against his ruling and demands for holding early presidential elections.
The National Coalition for Supporting Legitimacy has urged its supporters to rally on Thursday, with calls for escalating the protest until "the military regime falls".
