At Least 5 Killed in Three Bombings
By Harold Hutchison

At least five people have been killed in multiple bombings across Egypt. The blasts also left ninety people wounded.

According to a report by BBC, the first explosion killed four people, while one other person was killed between two other attacks. An al-Qaeda affiliate called Ansar Beit al-Maqdis. One analyst said that due to the attacks taking place on a Friday, the death toll was lower than it could have been.

The blast comes in the wake of the approval of a new Egyptian constitution by 98% of those who voted. The Egyptian government has been facing pressure from the Obama Administration since Mohammed Morsi was ousted last summer.
