At least five policemen and a woman were injured when a bomb planted in a vehicle went off in restive Alf Maskan area here, an official statement has said.

The bomb was reported to have planted by unknown militants in a private car parked near a police vehicle, a statement by ministry of health said yesterday, adding that one of the injured persons was in a critical condition.

On Thursday, suspected militants had carried out a bomb blast outside the presidential palace here, injuring at least two policemen. Alf Maskan area has witnessed frequent protests and clashes between Islamist demonstrators and police since the ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013. 

Militant attacks, targeting police and the Army, increased after the ouster of Morsi. Over 500 security personnel have been reportedly killed since then.
