Two Bombs Go Off On the Edge of Cairo, 6 Hurt

I put up this story just to show that the Muslim Brotherhood and the al Qaeda elements in Egypt continue to move closer and closer to striking at the heart of Egypt's center....and if the military of Egypt shows the slightest crack, the slightest inability to contain...all Hell on earth is going to break loose.

The story comes from DAWN.

Six hurt in blasts near Cairo: security sources

CAIRO: Two explosive devices detonated on Friday near a police checkpoint in Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo, wounding six people, the government and security sources said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blasts.

The Interior Ministry said four policemen were wounded.

State news agency MENA quoted the Health Ministry as saying six people were hospitalised, but did not specify their injuries.

Egypt has seen a wave of protests and violence since the army ousted elected President Mohamed Morsi last year amid mass protests against his rule.

Army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is expected to run for president and is widely expected to win by a landslide in an election due within six months.

A Sisi presidency would be opposed by Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, which the government has declared a terrorist group. It has launched a security crackdown against the movement, which rose to power after the 2011 uprising that toppled veteran leader Hosni Mubarak.

The Brotherhood denies any links to militants who have carried out attacks, including bombings in Cairo and the killing of an Interior Ministry official.

IN Egypt where the shit is happening, Sis and government declares Brotherhood terror orgs. Not much difference than before Morsi came to power. They have had their first taste of victory by being elected once and they are addicted to teh power. White house refuses to admit Brotherhood is indeed a terror org and allows it access . Whose right who is wrong.
