Two homemade bombs were found in the premises of the courthouse in Dirkinia, Dakahlia governorate, and were defused without going off.
Both bombs were placed in a lavatory located on the ground floor. Lawyers noticed two strange-looking wired objects earlier today and informed security personnel.
Upon checking them, a bomb expert confirmed they were explosive devices and the building was evacuated shortly afterwards.
A source said each bomb consisted of a black plastic bag containing explosive materials. They were both connected to a primitive timer.
No major trials have been held in Dikirnis' courthouse.
