Blast injures South African tourists in Egypt

Twelve people, mostly South Africans, have been injured in an explosion targeting a tourist bus in Egypt, according to security sources.

They said Sunday's (May 19) blast took place near a new museum being built close to the Giza pyramids.

This witness is saying he was in a car right behind the bus, and that all the foreigners in the front are injured.

A security source said the vehicle was carrying 25 South Africans from the airport to the pyramids area - the explosion occurring a few hundred meters from the Grand Egyptian Museum - due to open next year.

Four Egyptians in a nearby car were injured by broken glass.

Egyptian security forces are waging a counter insurgency campaign against Islamist militants, some with links to Islamic State, that is focused in the north of the Sinai Peninsula - though attacks outside Sinai have been relatively rare.

In December, three Vietnamese tourists and an Egyptian tour guide were killed and at least ten other injured when a roadside bomb hit their tour bus near the Giza pyramids.
