Chemical explosion outside Cairo airport injures 12

Explosion in Cairo

An explosion ripped through fuel tanks near Egypt's Cairo airport on Thursday evening, igniting a fire in the area, but the country's civil aviation minister said air movement was unaffected.

A number of local tweets poured in with users claiming to have heard a loud explosion followed by the sounds of ambulances.

According to Military Spokesperson Tamer al-Rifai, preliminary reports suggest the explosion took place due to the high temperature caused by the hot weather.

Residents in different parts of East Cairo took to social media, saying the explosion rocked the districts of Fifth Settlement, Heliopolis and the 10th of Ramadan City - all situated near the airport.
