World A- A A+

Security forces in Egypt killed 12 suspected militants in raids near Cairo, announced the Interior Ministry on Monday.

The development took place a day after a bomb blast injured 17 people, including tourists, near the Giza pyramids.

The ministry said seven of the militants, who were affiliated with the banned Muslim Brotherhood, were killed in a firefight when police raided their hideout in the Sixth of October suburb. 

In another such raid in Cairo's Al-Shorouk neighborhood against the Hasm group, an armed affiliate of the Brotherhood, the ministry said five suspected extremists were killed in an exchange of fire.

Weapons and ammunition were seized in the two apartments, the ministry said.
