CAIRO: The son of a food street vendor was killed in Alexandria Tuesday after a bomb detonated as a police patrol was passing by, Youm7 reported.

A number of bomb attacks and attempted explosions took place Tuesday; explosive devices detonated in the morning in Talaat Harb Square in downtown Cairo and in Rafah, North Sinai, leaving no casualties.

Two improvised bombs were also neutralized in the vicinity of Cairo International Airport, another at a large bus stop in downtown Cairo, and one inside a hospital in Menoufia.

In Sharqia, two bombs found under the car of a prosecutor and outside a court were defused. The four-finger Rabaa al-Adaweya sign and Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis signs were found inside the explosives, according to Youm7.

Hundreds of explosive devices targeted police and military personnel since the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013; while the majority of the bombings victims have been officers, dozens of civilians have also been killed in such attacks.
