Explosion damages small bus in Egypt

The Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in Egypt said on Monday an MFO vehicle was damaged on Egyptian territory with no injuries and denied a report that a small bus had exploded on its facilities.

An Egyptian security source had earlier said a small bus exploded in an airport in Sinai used by the MFO, which has contingents from 11 countries to supervise security provisions in the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty.

"An MFO vehicle was damaged. The two occupants of the vehicle are unharmed and uninjured," MFO official Ian Baxendell, said. He said he did not have details of how the damage was caused but said it was on Egyptian territory not MFO facilities.

Asked if there was an explosion, Baxendell told Reuters: "There was not." He said an investigation was under way, reports Reuters.

According to FOX News, senior security officials in Cairo said the two wounded were Canadian members of the MFO. Their names were not immediately known.

The cause of the explosion was not immediately clear.

An official at the Multinational Force's offices in Cairo referred all questions to the unit's spokesman, who wasn't immediately available.

The Multinational Force and Observers was created to help implement the 1979 Camp David peace treaty between Israel and Egypt. It comprises troops from the United States, Canada and a number of European nations who act as a peace monitoring force in the Sinai Peninsula — the battlefield of three Arab-Israeli wars between 1956 and 1973.

But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...
