  • There were no reports of deaths on the attack near the pyramids

An explosion targeting a tourist bus has injured at least 16 people near the Grand Egyptian Museum, next to the pyramids in Giza, security sources say. No one is believed to have been killed.

The bus was carrying at least 25 people mostly from South Africa, officials added.

The attack comes as the Egyptian tourism sector is recovering following years of crisis that followed the 2011 Arab Spring uprising that ended with the toppling of then-leader Hosni Mubarak.

One witness told Reuters news agency that he heard a "very loud explosion" near the site of the blast. Footage circulated online shows shattered windows of the bus.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief media.

Most of those injured were foreign tourists, according to sources.

The explosion happened a few hundred metres from the Grand Egyptian Museum, not far from the site of a roadside blast that hit another tourist bus in December.

Earlier this year, three Vietnamese tourists and a guide were killed when a bomb went off less than 2.5 miles near the Giza pyramids. It said the militants belonged to Hasm, a group authorities say is an armed faction of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group from which Mohammed Morsi, the Egyptian president ousted by the military in 2013, hails.
