Blast during raid on militant hideout kills 6, including 3 policemen in Egypt

Egypt, Jsn 22: A bomb blast killed six people, including three Egyptian policemen, as a team of officers on Thursday raided an apartment in Cairo suspected to be a militant hideout, the interior ministry said.

The explosion in the capital's Al-Haram district, near the pyramids, came ahead of next week's anniversary of the 2011 revolution that ousted longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

The interior ministry blamed Thursday's incident on the blacklisted Islamist Muslim Brotherhood movement of ousted president Mohamed Morsi.

"Police had information that a group of Muslim Brotherhood members were preparing to carry out aggressive acts in the coming days using explosives and crude bombs," the ministry said on its Facebook page.
