Egypt: Bomb explosion kills one person in Cairo suburb

A bomb blast killed Friday in the Egyptian capital one person and wounded two others as the country’s former President Hosni Mubarak was allowed to return home after a court acquitted him.
The explosion took place in the Maadi suburb on Algeria Street, killing Hamada Abdel Aty, a 35-year-old property guard, reports say.


Aty reportedly saw the bomb in the street near where he was working, while cleaning the area surrounding the property.
The blast injured Aty’s wife and child who have been admitted to hospital.
Security forces rushed to the scene to comb the area and conduct investigation.
The Egyptian capital has witnessed a spill-over of Islamist attacks in the restive Sinai province where the army is struggling with the Islamic State group.
The Interior Ministry however rejected the terrorist attack version of the Friday blast. A spokesman for the ministry indicated that the incident will not be treated as terrorist attack.
The blast occurred few hours after the release of Hosni Mubarak from a military hospital. The former leader has been cleared of all indictments by a Cairo court.
