10 Killed in Egypt Explosion

At least 10 people have reportedly been killed and further 13 injured after a bomb exploded during a police raid on a suspected terrorists’ hideout in the Cairo suburb of Giza near the road leading to the famous Egyptian pyramids.
The bomb exploded at an apartment building as police arrived to conduct a raid on it. Suspected militants were believed to have been hiding and preparing explosives inside, Ahram Online reports. Ten people, including seven policemen and three civilians, were killed when security officers attempted to diffuse a time-bomb, prosecutor Ahmed El-Tamawy told Aswat Masriya. At least 13 others were injured.
The interior ministry blamed Muslim Brotherhood militants for the explosion. According to the local media a suspect has been detained in connection with the bombing.
Earlier in the day, Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for an attack carried out late Wednesday night on a checkpoint in the Sinai Peninsula that killed five policemen, the interior ministry announced.
