Police officer Diaa Aboul Fotouh died of injuries while he was defusing a bomb near the Talbiya Police Department on Haram Street. He had been taken to hospital and was in serious condition.

Giza security sources on Tuesday afternoon said the Civil Protection Department received a notification about a suspicious object near the Nasreddin tunnel and sent a force to inspect it, but the object exploded and injured the officer.
 
The sources added that Haram Street was closed from both directions to search for other explosive devices, while a security official said that gunshots were heard after the explosion.
