Bombs uncovered on Egypt railway tracks


A charred body has been found near a train
station in southern Egypt after a bomb
exploded, as police uncovered three
unexploded devices planted on railway tracks in
the region.
The blast took place on Saturday night in the
town of Al-Wasta, in the province of Beni Suef,
south of Cairo. The interior ministry said in a
statement that the body probably belonged to
the person who had planted the bomb.
The unexploded bombs were found on railway
lines linking Cairo to the far southern city of
Aswan, the ministry said.
Egypt has been hit by a wave of bombings and
shootings since the military ousted President
Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
Assailants have stepped up attacks targeting
public transport, including a bomb last week on
a train north of Cairo that killed two policemen
and two passengers.
On Thursday, four people were hurt in a
stampede at the capital’s Ramses station after
a blast inside a compartment of a train that
pulled in from the Nile Delta, security officials
said. The blast was caused by a sound bomb,
they said.
