CAIRO: Four explosive devices were neutralized or detonated without leaving casualties in Cairo and Upper Egypt Friday, Youm7 reported.

In the busy Haram Street of Giza governorate, two bombs were defused outside a movie theater and a shopping mall. The bombs contained nails, sulfur, gunpowder and a SIM card so it detonates remotely.

Muslim Brotherhood protesters torched a police vehicle using Molotov cocktails and had briefly blocked the street, according to Youm7.

Another bomb, composed of gas, an electrical circuit and a timer, was found next to the railways in Upper Egypt’s governorate of Assyut before it was neutralized after passengers reported it to the police.

On the Assyut-Sohag highway, a bomb exploded outside a State Information Service building, failing to damage people or properties.
