Two injured in Bulaq attack

Two construction workers were injured on Monday after two unidentified men allegedly threw an explosive device at the Bulaq police station, the state-owned Middle East News Agency (MENA) reported.

A security source claimed that three unknown assailants threw a bomb at the police station and fled the scene. General Kamal al-Dally, head of the Security Directorate, called on police forces to identify and arrest the assailants.

Also on Monday, in Minya police forces arrested three suspects and killed a fourth who were accused of involvement in an attack on the Maghagha police station following the violent dispersal of two pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo two weeks ago.

The victim was killed when security forces exchanged gunfire with the suspects prior to making the arrests.
