Explosion leaves three dead, several injured in Egypt

The fatalities in the attack near the Khan el-Khalili bazaar in the heart of Cairo were all policemen.

The attack was a rarity for the central area of Egypt's capital amid a years-long security crackdown under President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

At least three people were killed and several injured when an explosive device carried by a militant exploded in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, on Monday, according to a statement from the interior ministry. He was wanted in a bombing last Friday near a mosque in Cairo's district of Giza and the police had been monitoring his movements, the statement said.

The area around the Al Azhar mosque is home to crowded markets and is a popular tourist destination.

Police also found a time bomb in the apartment, prompting an evacuation of the building.

In December, three Vietnamese tourists and their Egyptian guide died when a homemade bomb exploded on their bus on the outskirts of Cairo.

Monday's night incident came just two days after the military reported the death and injury of 15 army soldiers when Islamic militants attacked a checkpoint in northern Sinai, the deadliest attack in the mostly desert peninsula since November 2017 when more than 300 worshippers were killed in the worst terror attacks in Egypt's modern history.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.

Egypt has also for years been battling an extremist insurgency, which deepened following military's ousting of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013. The militants have mainly targeted security forces and Christians.

Egyptian security forces launched a major anti-militant operation in February 2018 focused on the Sinai Peninsula, aimed at wiping out a local affiliate of the IS group.
