Egypt: Homemade bomb hits el-Sissi rally, 4 hurt
A homemade bomb has exploded at an election rally for Egyptian presidential candidate Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, wounding four people, including two policemen, the official news agency reported. Al-Sisi was not at the rally in the Cairo district of Ezbet el-Nakhl when the bomb went off late Saturday.

 

The attack was the first to be reported on a campaign event for the retired field marshal, who ousted Egypt's first freely elected president last July. Sisi has not appeared in any election rallies, apparently for security reasons, restricting his campaign to television appearances and interviews. (AP)
