Two bombs killed six police officers and a civilian on Friday, according to Egyptian state media, according to CNN.

CNN, said that one bomb went off in Giza’s Haram district on the street leading to the pyramids, killing the officers and wounding three others, state-owned Al-Ahram newspaper reported.

A second bomb in Kafr El-Sheikh killed one civilian motorist and wounded three police officers, it added.

That bomb apparently targeted a police vehicle.

There was no immediate credible claim of responsibility for either bombing.

Egypt has seen escalating attacks by Islamist militants, though most attacks have taken place in the Sinai Peninsula, CNN wrote.
