CAIRO : A bomb blast in an upmarket central Cairo district wounded two policemen and a passer-by Tuesday, the latest attack on Egypt’s security forces since Islamist president Mohamed Morsi was ousted. The morning attack blew off the roof of a shelter manned by traffic police at a busy intersection in Al-Galaa Square in the Egyptian capital’s Dokki neighbourhood. It was unclear whether the bomb was planted at the site or was thrown by assailants.

Two Egyptian policemen and a civilian were wounded in the attack, security and medical officials said.

Egypt has been rocked by a series of bombings and shootings carried out by militants since July when the military ousted Morsi, the country’s first civilian and elected president.
