A bomb is defused in Giza, the second in the past two weeks

Egyptian security forces defused Thursday an improvised bomb found in front of a police post in Egypt's Giza with no injuries or deaths reported, the MENA state news agency reported.

An anonymous security source told MENA that explosives experts successfully disarmed the device that was found in front of a Giza traffic unit, a department of the police.

Bombing attempts have become frequent following the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 amid nationwide mass protests against his rule. A sustained crackdown followed by the state on his Islamist supporters.

Late December, security forces defused a bomb found in Gamaa Bridge, also in Giza.

The latest explosion to hit Egypt was early in December in Fayoum, south of Cairo, injuring one person.
