cairo bombTwo Egyptian military cadets were killed in a bombing north of Cairo on Wednesday as they waited to board a bus, officials said.

The blast struck in the Nile Valley city of Kafr al-Sheikh and wounded 10 other people, police officials said.

Scores of policemen and soldiers have been killed in attacks since the military overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

Most have taken place in the Sinai Peninsula, where the Islamic State group’s affiliate in Egypt is based.

Other attacks have targeted policemen and soldiers in the capital and the Nile Delta.

Kafr el-Sheikh governor Osama Hamdi Abdel Wahid told the private CBC Extra news station that he could confirm two cadets had been killed.

The bombing took place outside the the city’s football stadium where the cadets were waiting for their bus, he said.
