Topic: Bomb wounds two policemen on anniversary of Egypt uprising


By Ali Abdelaty CAIRO (Reuters) - A bomb wounded two Egyptian policemen in Cairo and security forces quickly dispersed small protests on Sunday, the anniversary of a popular uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak in 2011, officials said. The blast targeted policemen stationed outside a sports club in Cairo's Heliopolis area, security sources said. In the Nile Delta region of Baheira, about 170 km (104 miles) from Cairo, two militants were killed when bombs they were planting exploded, state television reported. Supporters of deposed president Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood gathered near Tahrir Square -- symbolic heart of the 2011 revolt -- and held up photographs of him, a Reuters witness said.
