LONDON---British police say a
teenage boy and girl have been
arrested on suspicion of prepar-
ing terrorist acts.
Greater Manchester Police said
Sunday a 14-year-old boy and 16-
year-old girl have been arrested
following two separate police raids
that took place Thursday and Fri-
day. Police say they had warrants
for both searches.
The two teens have not been
named and both have been freed
on bail until a May 28 court hear-
Police say they were arrested
on suspicion of preparing acts of
terrorism as part of an ongoing
The number of terrorism-relat-
ed arrests in Britain has surged in
recent months as an increasing
number of Britons try to travel to
Syria to link up with Islamic State
group extremists there.
Separately, police are question-
ing six people arrested earlier Fri-
day in the port city of Dover,
which has extensive ferry service
linking England to France.
Five men and one woman in
their 20s were arrested in a depar-
ture lounge there Friday night.
CAIRO---A bomb blast on a bridge leading
to an upscale neighbourhood in central Cairo
killed a policeman and wounded at least two
passers-by yesterday, hours after Egyptian
security forces killed the leader of an extrem-
ist group that claimed responsibility, police
An Associated Press reporter saw a mangled
corpse hanging out of a truck on the bridge,
which spans the Nile River connecting the
Giza district to the wealthy island neighbour-
hood of Zamalek, where many embassies are
Dozens of people gathered at the scene,
some yelling in outrage, others in fear or grief.
Several cars were stopped in traffic with their
windows blown out.
"All of a sudden a bomb exploded and there
was lots of smoke," said Ahmed Hussein, an
eyewitness who was on the bridge at the time
of the blast and saw the policeman killed.
"His body was torn apart," he said.
Maj Gen Ihab Roushdy, deputy police chief
in Cairo s western district, said a pickup truck
from outside the city stopped near the police-
man s post to ask directions. The explosion
then went off, killing the policeman and
wounding a man in the passenger seat and a
woman who was climbing stairs up to the
"This will not break our will. We will con-
tinue to fight terrorism," Roushdy told reporters
at the scene of the blast, as bomb squads
combed the area and police cordoned it off.
Extremist group Ajnad Misr, or Soldiers of
Egypt, claimed responsibility for the bombing
in a message posted on a Twitter account it
uses, the SITE intelligence group said. Security
officials said they were aware of the claim and
Later in the day, a security official said
troops had killed Ajnad Misr s leader and
founder in a shootout at a Cairo apartment
at dawn. Security forces had been following
the movements of Hammam Mohamed Attia,
33, and surrounded the residential high-rise
building in a busy neighbourhood before raiding
it, he added.
Security forces found explosives and firearms
in the apartment in Giza, the western part of
greater Cairo, he said. He and the other security
officials spoke on condition of anonymity
because they were not authorised to release
the information otherwise.
Attacks mainly targeting Egyptian security
forces have spiked since the 2013 military
overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed
Morsi following massive protests against his
divisive rule. Militant groups say they are
avenging a security crackdown on Islamists,
while authorities blame Morsi supporters for
The bombings in Cairo have mainly con-
sisted of small, homemade explosives that
cause few casualties. They have hit civilian
areas, including Cairo s leafy Maadi suburb,
where many foreigners live, but such incidents
are extremely rare in Zamalek.
Last week Ajnad Misr claimed responsibility
for another bombing in front of Cairo Uni-
versity that wounded eight people, including
four police officers. Another two bombs
exploded Saturday, also nearby in Giza, leaving
craters but causing no casualties. (AP)
Police have been given permission
to question the six until Friday before
they have to charged, released, or sub-
jected to another warrant for more
questioning. Earlier this week nine
Britons from one family were arrested
in Turkey trying to enter Syria.
Police said the new arrests are not
related to the detention of the family
in Turkey. (AP)
