A potentially deadly bomb blast has occured near a church in Heliopolis. The attack happened in the Roxy area of the East Cairo suburb. Three cars were damaged in the blast, which left no casualties.

Security forces are now probing the area in an effort to ensure there are no further explosive devices. The use of home-made bombs and improvised explosives has been on the rise recently following a decrease in the number of large-scale militant attacks.
