(MENAFN -Arab News) CAIRO: Six Egyptian policemen were wounded in a bomb attack on a bridge in the capital on Friday, officials said.The attack shattered a tense calm in Cairo after a spate of bombings on January 24 killed six policemen, in an escalation of a militant campaign following the overthrow of Islamist president Muhammad Mursi.The interior ministry said two small bombs exploded near policemen stationed on a bridge near central Cairo. At least six were wounded in the attack, the health ministry said.Police cordoned off the scene, where a lightly damaged police truck appeared to have borne the brunt of the blast.State television reported that the attack targeted a checkpoint set up to counter a scheduled protest by Mursi"s Islamist supporters, who had called for rallies later on Friday.Militant attacks on police and soldiers have killed scores, mostly in the restive Sinai Peninsula, since Mursi"s overthrow by the military on July 3.Sinai-based jihadists have also claimed responsibility for attacks targeting police in Cairo and elsewhere.An Al-Qaeda-inspired group based in the Sinai said it carried out a car bombing outside Cairo police headquarters on January 24 that killed four people.Two more policemen were killed in three additional bombings in the capital that day.
