It came months after three Vietnamese holidaymakers and their Egyptian guide were killed when a roadside bomb hit their bus near the pyramids in December.

Egypt's Minister of Tourism Rania A. Al Mashat called it a "minor explosion" in a Twitter post.

The statement did not directly link the raids to Sunday's attack in which a roadside bomb hit a tourist bus near the famed Giza pyramids. It says the militants belonged to "Hasm", an armed faction of the Brotherhood.

The nationalities of those injured haven't been officially disclosed yet, though, according to Sky News Arabia, the injured people include ten Egyptian nationals and seven tourists from South Africa.

Authorities have gone at great lengths to lure tourists back, touting a series of archaeological finds and a new museum next to the pyramids, as well as enhanced security at airports and around ancient sites.
