At Least Seven Wounded in Bomb Attack on Cairo Metro

Cairo Metro

At least seven people were wounded when a bomb went off in a Cairo metro carriage on Thursday, according to AFP, citing security officials.

According to Al Ahram, the injuries were caused when people tried to escape from the site of the blast. The incident occurred while the metro was departing from Helmeyet Al-Zaytoun station on the Marg to Helwan line. Metro movement stopped completely and the train has been moved to Saray Al-Qobba station.

Egypt has been hit by a wave of terrorist attacks, most of them executed by the Sinai-based group Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, which on Monday pledged its allegiance to ISIS.

Last week, a bomb on a train north of Cairo killed four people, including two policemen, and explosions in the Cairo metro and outside the presidential palace wounded several others.
