A man died on Sunday when an improvised explosive device he was assembling blew up accidentally in a residential area in Shibin al-Kom, Monufiya.
Bomb squads arrived at the scene of the burning flat and found the suspect dead inside.
Police arrested two other suspects in the vicinity of the explosion.
Egypt has been witnessing recurrent bombings, mainly targeting police and army forces, since the ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi in 2013. Authorities blame Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood for the bombings.
