Three people were killed in a car bomb blast on Wednesday in Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt's state-run Nile Television said. Another state news outlet, Al-Ahram, quoted Brigadier Mahmoud Shawki, a police officer, as saying those killed had been inside the car and were likely to have been on their way to carry out a "terrorist operation". Egypt has seen a wave of protests and violence since the army ousted elected Islamist President Mohamed Mursi last year amid mass protests against his rule. Supporters of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the former army chief, see him as Egypt's saviour who can end the political turmoil and bring prosperity to the country.
