Senior police officer dies of injuries from bomb

Officer was injured in bomb attack last week at Heliopolis Court

A senior police officer died Monday due to injuries sustained in a 10 August bomb attack in front of the Heliopolis Court, state-run news agency MENA reported.

Officer Hisham Al-Azab, who was head of the Nozha traffic department in eastern Cairo, underwent two surgeries at Wadi El-Nil Hospital before passing away. Another police conscript was injured in the attack.

On the day of the attack, extremist militant group Ajnad Misr claimed responsibility via their Twitter account for the bomb explosion near the Heliopolis Court, which left two other security personnel injured.

Another bomb was detected after bomb squads surveyed the surrounding areas.

The Ministry of Interior announced the names of the injured as Colonel Hisham Al-Azab, Sheriff Ahmed Fekry, and conscript Mostafa Abbas. The ministry also said tapes from cameras in the area will be reviewed to find out who was behind the attack.
