Explosion Injures Tourists Near Egypt’s Giza Pyramids

More than a dozen people were injured in an explosion that targeted a tourist bus near Egypt‘s Giza pyramids Sunday.

Citing Egypt’s state-run Ahram daily, CNN reported at least 14 people were hurt when a device exploded near the bus carrying 25 South African citizens outside of the yet-to-be-opened Grand Egyptian Museum.

“The bus was hit but it didn’t look like it exploded,” eyewitness Mona Zeidan told CNN. “They were all minor injuries and nothing serious.”

Zeidan, who drove by the scene after the explosion, added that security was inspecting the bus.

This weekend’s incident comes just a few months after three Vietnamese tourists and their Egyptian tour guide were killed by a roadside bomb near the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The $1 billion Grand Egyptian Museum is slated to open next year.
