A bomb-laden car has exploded in Giza, killing three suspected militants, a security source told state news agency MENA.

The source said the bomb probably detonated accidently while the car was driving in Al-Saf town in Giza. Investigations are ongoing to identify the bodies.

Egypt has witnessed an upsurge in attacks, mainly targeting security forces and installations, since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year.
