Experts disable bombs near Pyramids

Egyptian disposal experts have successfully disabled 10 unexploded aerial bombs discovered by souvenir vendours near the Menkaure’s Pyramid at Giza, according to the Voice of Russia.

The bombs are from the 1967 Six-Day War with Israel. Initially, there were as many as 11 at the scoured site. The first one went off, leaving three vendours badly injured.

Ahram Online reports officials saying the explosion was triggered by peddlers who saw metal glinting out of the sand and began hitting it with iron sticks, thinking the casing might conceal valuable goods. Three of them were seriously wounded.
