CAIRO, June 28 (Xinhua) -- A blast outside Egypt's capital Cairo killed a girl and wounded her mother on Saturday, the official news agency MENA reported.
MENA said that the blast hit an unfinished telecommunications building of state-owned Telecom Egypt, the country's fixed-line monopoly operator, in the 6th of October city outside Cairo.
The father of the killed girl is the guard of the building. It has not yet told the reason behind the explosion.
MENA said Communications Minister Atef Helmy inspected the scene, and quoted the governor of Giza province, where the building is located, as saying the blast cut the services to about 800 clients.
Since the ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi by the army last July over mass protests, a wave of explosions targeted policemen and troops in the restive Sinai Peninsula and lately some attacks have hit Cairo and Nile Delta cities.
