Egypt military defuse bomb on railroad: Security officials
CAIRO (AFP) - Egyptian military engineers defused on Saturday mortar rounds rigged to explode on a railroad linking the canal cities of Ismailiya and Suez, security officials said.
Police called in the military experts after residents of a village near the railroad spotted the bomb, the officials said.
The officials said the two mortar rounds and a rocket-propelled grenade attached to a fuse appeared to have been intended for a 6am train.
The discovery of the bomb comes after a powerful explosion targeted Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim as he left his house for work on Thursday.
