The blast killed ten people, including seven policemen, and injured 13 as security forces raided a terrorist hideout in Giza province near the capital Cairo on Thursday, Xinhua reported.
The security force stormed the apartment after receiving information that a group of terrorists were hiding inside, Egypt’s Interior Ministry said.
Egypt has been facing anti-government attacks, mostly in the Sinai peninsula, which killed hundreds of police and soldiers since 2013.
Most of the terror attacks were claimed by Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis militant group, which has changed its name to “Sinai State” and declared loyalty to the Islamic State. (IANS)
