An improvised explosive device (IED) was found and deactivated inside a bus in Al-Hegaz Square in Heliopolis on Saturday afternoon.

A detective officer on the scene told Daily News Egypt that a citizen found an IED on the bus and informed policemen, who came to the scene shortly after and deactivated the bomb. Policemen are currently interrogating eyewitnesses for more information.

The incident comes two days after a bomb exploded under a bus in Nasr City, causing five injuries, with another defused nearby, as claimed by the Ministry of Interior.
