Explosion on Heliopolis tram

One person was injured by a homemade explosive device on the Heliopolis tram, the website of state-owned daily Al-Ahram reported Saturday. 

One passerby was injured by the device, which reportedly detonated after security services found it and a further two explosive devices near Ettehadiya Presidential Palace at the Marghany Street tram stop. 

The tram was headed towards Thawra Street.

Ahram’s website said that the other two devices were defused by a bomb squad and K-9 units were inspecting the area.
