CAIRO: Deputy Minister of Interior for Port Said Security Mohamed al-Sharqawi told Youm7 early Wednesday that a bomb exploded in a reserve gas pipeline near Ring Road in Port Said.

Sharqawi said the gas pipeline was empty and no casualties were reported.

He said army, police and National Security commanders responded to the site, and a criminal investigation team and a bomb squad are inspecting the bomb to confirm if its components are similar to other bombs that have caused blasts in other governorates.
