Terror in Egypt: Three police officers killed and 17 people injured

A bomb attack has killed six people including three police officers and injured at least 15 others near a road leading to the Egyptian pyramids in Cairo. The bomb exploded as a team of officers raided an apartment where militants were preparing explosives in the suburb of Giza, police said.

‘Six people have been killed in the blast, including three policemen,’ an officer said. ‘The others include a civilian and two unidentified men.’ The explosion on Thursday came ahead of Monday’s anniversary of the 2011 revolution that ousted longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak. Egyptian police have been questioning residents and searching apartments in central Cairo as a ‘precautionary measure’ to prevent street protests on the anniversary, security officials said on Thursday.
