Blast Kills One in Alexandria, Bombs Found at Cairo Airport

According to reports, a man was killed in a bomb blast in Egypt’s city of Alexandria, hours after two devices were discovered at Cairo airport and another went off in the center of the capital. No one was killed by the capital bombing.

The bomb in Alexandria front of the Mabaret Al-Asafra Hospital killed a 27-year-old man and wounded three others.

Before that, Cairo airport authorities tightened security after finding two unexploded bombs near the arrivals hall. Security officials are reviewing video footage to try and determine who planted them.

The group behind the attacks has yet to be identified, but Islamist militants have carried out numerous bomb attacks since 2013. Last week, Islamic State’s Egyptian affiliate claimed responsibility for coordinated attacks in the Sinai Peninsula which killed more than 30 security personnel.
