Egypt’s Minister of Tourism Rania Al-Mashat said on Saturday that the ministry will coordinate with the embassy of Vietnam to ease travel to Egypt for the families of the Vietnamese tourists who were injured in a bomb blast which hit their bus on Friday.

In a statement, Minister Al-Mashat expressed her condolences to the Vietnamese ambassador in Cairo for the attack, which killed three Vietnamese and one Egyptian tourism worker.

Egypt's Prosecutor-General Nabil Sadek has said that 11 other Vietnamese were injured.

The explosion occurred when an IED detonated as the tourist bus was moving along Marioutiya Road in the Haram district of Giza; 14 Vietnamese tourists and two Egyptian tourism workers were on board.
