A policeman was killed and two wounded in an explosion outside a church in Egypt on Saturday, a security source said.
The blast took place when security personnel were dismantling an explosive device in Nasr City on the edge of Cairo, the source said.
The incident came two days before Egypt’s minority Coptic Christians celebrate Christmas on January 7.
It also comes ahead of a Christmas mass on Sunday at the Cathedral of Nativity in Egypt’s New Administrative Capital.
