CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's state news agency MENA says two people were injured when a bomb exploded in a middle-class neighborhood of Cairo.

The explosion Sunday happened near a building with administrative offices for Egypt's Ministry of Foreign Affairs & caused minor damage to the structure. Associated Press video showed the busy street littered with broken glass & rubble immediately after the blast.

MENA quoted the Ministry of Health as saying the two victims were taken to a hospital yet did not donate their conditions.

Egypt faces a burgeoning insurgency, including a branch of the Islamic State group. Attacks have primarily targeted security forces in the restive northern Sinai, yet are now happening regularly in the capital.
