Small bomb shatters glass of two cars in Cairo area

A small bomb exploded early Monday in a Cairo neighborhood near the Pyramids, shattering the glass of two parked cars but injuring no one, police said. Investigators believe that someone threw the bomb from a balcony in the neighborhood of Giza, a few kilometers (one mile) away from the Pyramids, said a police official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media.

The target of the bomb, which was packed with nails, was not known, the official said. Cairo was the scene of two militant attacks earlier this year that killed a total of seven people. In one, on April 7, three Western tourists and the suicide bomber died in a market area that is popular with tourists in Cairo. In the second on April 30, an assailant who jumped from a bridge near the capital's Egyptian Museum and two women attackers who tried to target a tourist bus were killed.

Bombers also attacked the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik in July, at the peak of the summer tourist season, killing at least 64 people, both Western tourists and Egyptians, in three separate and coordianted attacks. Winter is the high tourist season at the Pyramids on Cairo's outer edge, reports the AP. I.L.
