At the moment no one took responsibility for the attack, but the agencies remind you that for years the struggle against Islamists, which sometimes moves to the rest of Egypt, is under way on the Sinai Peninsula. This is the second explosion in this place in recent months. In December of last year, three Vietnamese tourists and an Egyptian guide were killed as a result of a bomb explosion near the bus they traveled around the Giza pyramids. Also 10 other people were injured at that time.
