Blast hits near military facility in northern Egypt
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, December 29, 2013 5:26 AM EST
Egyptian security officials say that an explosion has gone off near a military facility in the countryside northeast of Cairo.
Initial reports suggest that the Sunday explosion was caused by a hand grenade thrown at the building in Anshas, a village in Sharqiya province that houses a number of military facilities. The officials spoke anonymously in line with regulations.
Attacks on security targets have become frequent following the July 3 ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. A Sinai-based militant group has claimed responsibility for a Tuesday car bomb at a Nile Delta security headquarters that killed 16.
