Police conscript injured in 6th of October City bombing

Another two blasts occurred Saturday morning near Zagazig University

By Waleed Samir

The bomb exploded as a security patrol passed in the area. The conscript sustained minor injuries.

Civil protection forces headed to the scene and combed the area, added a statement from the ministry.

On Saturday, two blasts occurred near Zagazig University. One of them went off in front of the College of Engineering, while the other occurred next to the Faculty of Pharmacy. No casualties were reported.

No militant group has claimed the attacks yet.

With a militant insurgency at its peak in the restive North Sinai governorate, and other attacks frequently occurring in Greater Cairo and other governorates, security forces have been cracking down on bomb makers and owners of small workshops where improvised explosive devices are believed to be made.
