2 killed in Cairo bomb blast

cairo bomb (AA) – Two Egyptians, including a policeman, were killed in a Thursday bomb blast in western Cairo, a Health Ministry spokesman has said.

“An explosive device went off in the Bolak al-Dakror district on Thursday,” Hossam Abdel-Ghaffar told The Anadolu Agency.

He said two people – a policeman and a civilian – had been killed in the blast.

There has been no claim of responsibility.

Bombings have become commonplace in Egypt since Mohamed Morsi – Egypt’s first democratically elected president – was ousted by the army in mid-2013.

While the government accuses Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood of carrying out the attacks, the group emphatically denies the allegations, saying it is committed to purely peaceful methods of protest.
