Three killed in car bomb in Cairo: Egyptian state-run TV
Cairo: Three people were killed in a car bomb blast on Wednesday in Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt`s state-run Nile Television said.
Another state news outlet, Al-Ahram, quoted Brigadier Mahmoud Shawki, a police officer, as saying those killed had been inside the car and were likely to have been on their way to carry out a "terrorist operation".
Shawki said the car was ripped in two by the blast and that security forces were trying to identify the dead, Al-Ahram reported.
Egypt has seen a wave of protests and violence since the army ousted elected Islamist President Mohamed Mursi last year amid mass protests against his rule.
Supporters of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the former army chief, see him as Egypt`s saviour who can end the political turmoil and bring prosperity to the country. But he is viewed by the Islamist opposition as the mastermind of a coup that ignited the worst internal strife in Egypt`s modern history.
