Two dead in blast targeting security convoy in Egypt’s Alexandria

An IED bomb exploded in the Roushdy neighborhood of Egypt's second largest city of Alexandria on Saturday and targeted the convoy of the city’s security chief, leaving at least two police officer dead.

Egypt’s Ministry of Interior confirmed that the bomb targeted Maj. Mustafa al-Nimr, who is said to have not been present and therefore survived the attack.

At least four others were injured in the bomb attack that went off in the Moaskar al-Romany street.

Eyewitnesses said police and military personnel had formed a perimeter around the site of the explosion, which took place two days before the country is due to hold a presidential election.
