Bomb suspected in Port Said railway station

Army forces stopped a train before it headed out of Port Said Railway Station on its way to Cairo at 1 pm on Thursday, after a suspicious object was discovered between two train carriages.

A bomb squad from the armed forces rushed to the scene and dismantled the object.

Security officials inspected the train and cleared it for boarding.

Some passengers, however, preferred leaving the station and using other means of travel.
