Cairo bombs wound one policeman
CAIRO - Two roadside bombs exploded near a passing patrol car in a Cairo suburb on Friday, slightly wounding one policeman, an Egyptian interior ministry statement said.
The attack came as Islamist supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi called for protests after the weekly Friday prayers.
Cairo has been rocked by several bombings and shootings targeting police over the past week.
On January 24, a day before the third anniversary of the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak, a car bombing hit police headquarters, one of four bombs targeting the force in the capital.
Six policemen were killed that day.
Four days later, police general Mohamed Saeed, an aide to the interior minister, was killed outside his home by gunmen on a motorbike.
Supporters of Morsi, who was ousted by the army on July 3, have called for protests on Friday.
The military-installed authorities have launched a deadly crackdown on Morsi's supporters, mostly Islamists, since his removal.
