Blast Kills 1 in Alexandria, Bombs Found in Cairo Airport
(Reuters) – A man was killed in a bomb blast in Egypt’s second city of Alexandria on Tuesday, hours after two devices were discovered at Cairo airport and another went off in the center of the capital without casualties, security sources said.
A bomb exploded in front of Alexandria’s Mabaret Al-Asafra Hospital, killing a 27-year-old man and wounding three others, the city’s assistant interior minister said.
Earlier, Cairo airport authorities tightened security after finding two unexploded bombs near the arrivals hall. Security officials were reviewing video footage to try to determine who planted them, security sources said.
