Traffic office torched in Giza

Other assailants accidentally detonate bomb and die in Beheira

A traffic office in Giza was torched Saturday night after assailants attacked it with Molotov cocktails.

Around a dozen assailants attacked the Talbiya traffic office during the sunset prayers before fleeing, state-run newspaper Al-Ahram reported.

The Giza Civil Protection unit moved to the site of the attack and managed to put out the fire. Police forces have yet to identify the attackers.

Also on Saturday, a bomb exploded in a bus station in Damanhour, in the Beheira governorate, leaving two dead and damaging a bus parked at the station.

The bomb is believed to have exploded on the motorcycle that the two attackers were riding, killing them and damaging the vehicle.

Homemade bombs and small IEDs have become common, as small explosions occur on a near-weekly basis in Cairo and across Egypt.

Often, the explosions target police stations and sites with a heavy security presence, but they also target roads, electricity units, and telecommunications stores.

Bombs on Friday targeted the Egyptian Media Production City (EMPC) in 6th of October City and a church, while also on Saturday, an explosion occurred in Assiut, damaging three cars and the fronts of two houses.
