KABUL: (Middle East Press) A bomb blast has rocked Gharbia province of northern Egypt leaving one dead and wounded 11 others.
The Egyptian forces said the incident took place in front of a mobile phone service store and a bank in el-Mahallah el-Kubra, late on Friday night.
This is while Khalid al-Khateb, a senior official at Egypt’s Health Ministry, confirmed the death of seven people.
No group has claimed responsibility for the blast. However, such incidents are blamed on the militants who have intensified terrorist attacks across Egypt since the ouster of Mohamed Morsi, the country’s former president, in July 2013.
