Egypt’s Tourism Minister، Rania Al-Mashat said that an incident took place in Giza involving a bus and a minor explosion.
“Today an incident took place in Giza involving a bus and a minor explosion. Of the 28 passengers on the bus we can confirm some minor injuries with three being treated at the hospital as a precaution،” she tweeted.
“All of those involved are being fully supported in their onward travels،” Al-Mashat added.
Noteworthy، an explosion targeting a tourist bus injured at least 12 people on Sunday، mostly South African tourists، near a new museum being built close to the Giza pyramids in Egypt، two security sources said
A third security source said the bus was carrying 25 South African tourists from the airport to the pyramids area، and that four Egyptians in a nearby car were also injured by broken glass.
Security and judicial sources said a rudimentary device containing nails and pieces of metal had been detonated remotely on the perimeter of the Grand Egyptian Museum، not far from the site of a roadside blast that hit another tourist bus in December.
Pictures posted on social media showed a bus with some of its windows blown out or shattered، and debris in the road next to a low wall with a hole in it.
One witness told Reuters he heard a “very loud explosion” while sitting in traffic.
South Africa’s foreign ministry said staff from its embassy in Egypt were visiting hospitals to check on the reported injuries.
