State media: Two blasts rock bridge in Cairo, 3 officers injured

Blasts in Cairo's Ain Shams district, Egypt, February 7, 2014.

At least three police officers were injured in twin blasts in Cairo Friday, Egyptian state media reported.

The explosions took place on a bridge in the Egyptian capital and targeted a police check point, according to state media.

Instability has raged in Egypt since the military toppled democratically-elected Mohamed Morsy last year. Security forces have also cracked down on the Islamist movement that supported him, the Muslim Brotherhood.

Last month, a powerful explosion hit the police headquarters in Cairo. It struck a key symbol of authority in a country shaken by political turmoil and violent unrest in recent years.
