Egyptian PM visits victims of blast that kills three Vietnamese tourists near Cairo pyramids

Three Vietnamese tourists and an Egyptian guide were killed and 11 others injured when a bomb blast hit their bus less than four km from Egypt’s world famous Giza pyramids.Nine of the injured were Vietnamese tourists, and one was the Egyptian driver, according to official statements. In total, 14 Vietnamese tourists had been travelling on the bus, said the interior ministry.

The interior ministry said the bus was hit by an explosion from an improvised device hidden near a wall on Marioutiya street at around 1615 GMT. No immediate claim of responsibility was reported. About two hours after the blast, the vehicle could be seen behind a police cordon with one of its sides badly damaged and the windows blown out, a Reuters reporter said. Dozens of police, military and firefighters were at the site, on a narrow sidestreet close to the ring road, where traffic was moving normally.
