Egypt Morsi Trial Judge Escapes Car Bombing

Egypt Morsi trial judge escapes car bombing

CAIRO, , (Pakistan Point News - 04th Nov, 2016 ) - An Egyptian judge in one of the trials of ousted president Mohamed Morsi escaped unharmed when a car bomb exploded in Cairo on Friday, police officials said. The officials said the bomb in the eastern Nasr City district had targeted judge Ahmed Abul Fotouh as he was driving by, adding that the blast injured no one. The attack came days after a roadside bombing targeting a police convoy in Cairo killed a passerby. In September, militants set off a car bomb as the country's deputy state prosecutor was passing by. He was unharmed. The militants have waged an insurgency that has killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers since the military ouster of Morsi in 2013.
