Officials: 4 explosions hit Cairo subway stations

CAIRO - Explosions have struck four subway stations in Cairo early on Wednesday morning, wounding two people and causing widespread panic among morning commuters, Egyptian security officials said.

 

The blasts took place in stations in central and northern Cairo. They were caused by homemade explosive devices.

 

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks - the first in the Egyptian capital since last month's election of former army chief Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi as the country's new president. (AP)
