Since the ouster of President Mohamed Morsy, Egypt has suffered from weekly bomb scares, whether near government or public transit facilities.
On Tuesday of last week, a deadly bomb went off in Mansoura, killing 16 people and injuring over 130 people. The government has vowed to step up security to fight these terrorist attacks.
