Egyptian police said they arrested a man Monday suspected of carrying out a deadly bomb attack in the capital Cairo, accusing him of having fought with jihadist groups in Syria.
Since the army ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July last year, militants have launched frequent attacks on police and troops across the country, but particularly in the Sinai Peninsula.
Four blasts targeting the police hit Cairo on January 24, killing six people. An Al-Qaeda-inspired militant group based in the Sinai, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, claimed the attacks.
