Bomb strikes tourist bus near Egypt’s Giza pyramids, kills 2
A roadside bomb hit a tourist bus Friday near the Giza Pyramids, killing two Vietnamese tourists and wounding 12 others, Egypt’s Interior Ministry said.
It said the bus was traveling in the Marioutiyah area near the pyramids when the crude roadside bomb, concealed by a wall, went off. The wounded included 10 Vietnamese tourists. The other two wounded were the Egyptian bus driver and the guide.
Egypt has battled Islamic militants for years in the Sinai Peninsula.
However, this is the first attack to target foreign tourists in almost two years.
