Bomb hits tourist bus near Egypt’s Giza Pyramids, wounds 16

CAIRO May 19 (AP/WNP): Egyptian officials Sunday said a roadside bomb has hit a tourist bus near the Giza Pyramids.
They said Sunday’s blast wounded at least 16 people, including tourists.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
The attack comes as Egypt’s vital tourism industry is showing signs of recovery after years in the doldrums because of the political turmoil and violence that followed a 2011 uprising that toppled former leader Hosni Mubarak.
It is the second to target foreign tourists near the famed pyramids in less than six months.
