CAIRO: The death toll of Mahalla bomb attacks that took place Saturday near an Emirati bank was raised to three people, the Health Directorate of the governorate in Delta announced Sunday.
The third case, called Abdelkarim Mohamed, 50, was killed due to severe injuries as his two legs were amputated and suffered from circulatory collapse, the statement added.
Police officer Mostafa Ahmed Abdo, 45, was killed when a bomb planted near a bank detonated, while police conscript Ibrahim Sayyed Abdullah, 25, died of severe hemorrhaging from his femoral artery in the Mahalla hospital.
Fifteen policemen and civilians were injured in the explosion; three are in critical condition while the other five are in intensive care, the statement noted.
Many of the injured have suffered severe injuries to their legs, with many requiring at least partial amputations, the Ministry of Health stated Saturday.
Four bombs were found Sunday morning under an overhead power line in Mahalla; the explosives experts remotely detonated them, Youm7 reported. No injuries were reported.
Since the ouster of Morsi in July 2013, a series of explosions have taken place nationwide. Several explosions took place in different parties in Egypt on the day of the recent Cabinet reshuffle, but no injuries were reported.
