A group of assailants armed with firearms attacked a bus belonging to Al-Ahram Foundation in Cairo's 6 October city on Thursday night, injuring six people. 

A number of Ahram staff were on board, travelling to printing houses in 6 October city, a satellite development on the outskirts of Cairo.

Three of the six people injured are in critical condition. The assailants reportedly destroyed the bus and escaped.

Egypt has been witnessing regular militant attacks in recent months. The anti-government Islamists allegedly behind the attacks primarily target security forces, as well as infrastructure targets such as the railway network and electricity pylons. Civilians have also been caught up in the violence.

Al-Ahram Foundation is a public company which produces over a dozen publications including Al-Ahram daily newspaper, in print since 1876, and a number of news websites including Ahram Online.

TH are you surprised?
Don't be surprised. These ikhwani terrorist and thier sheep have no common sense. They are blind followers. They see the terrorist murdering innocent Egyptians they come on here using angolo or Christian names pretending not to be who they are. Supporters of murderers terrorist that have nothing to do with Islam . Most of the innocent victims they kill are Muslims. But to them if your not a blind sheep that follows thier retarded warped ideology then you're not a Muslim you're an infidel that deserves to die. Egyptians are united like never before against these savavages. Inchallah we wipe them out and save our beautiful religion from this cancer

I disagree....
What logic are you using ? The six injured employees ARE INNOCENT ! The fact that you disagree with what Ahram does or says DOES NOT give you the right to KILL its employees . We are in the 21st century . We have to learn to agree to disagree and use peaceful means to bring about change.
