10 killed in Egypt blast

Cairo, Jan 22 (IANS) At least 10 people were killed in a blast in Egypt’s Giza province, the media reported.

The blast killed ten people, including seven policemen, and injured 13 as security forces raided a terrorist hideout in Giza province near the capital Cairo on Thursday, Xinhua reported.

The security force stormed the apartment after receiving information that a group of terrorists were hiding inside, Egypt’s Interior Ministry said.

Egypt has been facing anti-government attacks, mostly in the Sinai peninsula, which killed hundreds of police and soldiers since 2013.

Most of the terror attacks were claimed by Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis militant group, which has changed its name to “Sinai State” and declared loyalty to the Islamic State.
