Egypt bomb attack kills 2 in Menufiya province

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – A bomb attack in the Egyptian province of Menufiya has left two people dead and 11 others wounded.

The bomb was planted in a train carriage and went off when it was being inspected by military troops at a station in Menufiya province north of the capital Cairo, the Egyptian security sources said on Wednesday.

Both of the victims were police forces who were trying to evacuate passengers from the train as the bomb exploded, the Egyptian state media said.

In late October, two attack claimed the lives of 33 soldiers in the Sinai Peninsula of the North African country.

Egypt has been the scene of numerous bombings and armed attacks since the military-led ouster of the nation’s first democratically-elected president, Mohamed Morsi, in July 2013.

Most of the attacks have been carried out in the restive Sinai Peninsula that has long been considered a safe haven for gunmen who use the region as a base for their acts of terror.
