Car explodes in central Cairo, cause unclear

By Sami Aboudi and Ahmad Elhamy

CAIRO, 06 August. - (ANA) - An explosion destroyed a car near a bridge in central Cairo on Monday after a collision, a health ministry spokesman said.

It was not immediately clear what caused the blast. Two security sources told Reuters a faulty battery may have been responsible.


Ministry spokesman Khaled Megahed told journalists three people were injured and transferred to hospital. Another health ministry official told a local radio station that several others were treated for minor injuries.

The security sources said flames from the car spread to a minibus, which Reuters witnesses said was also destroyed, with debris and metal scattered close by.

A civil defense officer told Reuters at the site that at least five people were hurt.  - (ANA) -
