Small bombs explode near Giza’s Imbaba police station, no injuries

Two improvised explosive devices detonated Saturday near Giza’s Imbaba Police Station. No casualties were reported.

 Preliminary investigations showed that the bombs were planted close to the nearby Ahmed Orabi School and targetted police vehicles.

 The bombs caused the glass of the school to shatter with one police vehicle damaged, according to Reuters’ Aswat Masriya.

 Egypt has been battling a decade-long militant insurgency in North Sinai that spiked since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.

 In recent months, dozens of smaller bombs have been planted by alleged Islamist militants nationwide, targeting security personnel as well as economic installations such as electricity pylons and mobile phone stores.

 Militants have also placed a large number of decoy and sound bombs in various spots around the capital and other cities.
