CAIRO: Two children were killed and another was injured after an attempted armed robbery at the main post office in Minya on Sunday, reported Youm7.
It was reported that the accident started with a fight between a cart vendor and a driver of a private car, who then opened random fire. The shooting reportedly killed two children and injured another, who happened to be in the area at that time.
Unknown assailants then attempted to storm the post office using knives, and employees bolted the door until security forces arrived.
The third injured child was transferred to hospital in critical condition.
