A school principle in Beheira died out of cardiac arrest on Sunday while monitoring the voting process for parliamentary elections, and seven others were injured, according to the Ministry of Health.
Minister of Health Ahmed Emad El-Din said the injuries vary from fainting to high blood pressures. Among the injured were two in the Alexandria governorate and three from Minya in Upper Egypt.
In order to secure the polling for the ongoing parliamentary elections, the ministry said there are about 3,000 ambulances surrounding voting committees across Egypt in case of emergencies.
Two bombs exploded Sunday morning, on the first day of parliamentary elections, in front of a school in Kerdasa. No injuries were reported.
Bomb squads reportedly said the two bombs were only sound bombs and did not affect the voting process.
Another bomb exploded in Al-Arish, North Sinai on Sunday morning, killing a police conscript and injuring a lieutenant, according to the military spokesperson.
