Egypt’s Interior Ministry announced on Saturday that “40 terrorists were killed in an exchange of fire with security forces during a raid on three places sheltering terrorists in the governorates of Giza and North Sinai,” the official government news channel Nile News reported.

The ministry said it found large quantities of weapons and explosives, adding that the terrorist groups were planning terrorist attacks targeting security centers and Christian churches.

This comes following the death of three Vietnamese tourists and ten others were injured following an explosion that hit a tourist bus in the Egyptian city of Giza on Friday, according to the Egyptian ministry of interior.

A statement from Egypt's Interior Ministry said the bus was traveling in the Marioutiyah area near the pyramids when the crude roadside bomb, concealed by a wall, went off.

Security forces immediately evacuated the area and moved casualties to hospitals.
