Events at Giza

I have heard that people all over the world is reporting that a bomb exploded at near the pyramid of Menkaure at Giza, which is not true. The truth is that three people found unused ammunition in the desert and managed to injure themselves, but the pyramids were not damaged in any way.

There is an area in the desert, about 2 or 3 kilometers away from the pyramids at Giza, which was used as a camp by soldiers during the 2nd World War, and they left behind the remains of ammunition and other things. When it rained heavily in Cairo last week, the rain began to wash away the sand and these remains began to appear on the surface. A group of people who are horse and camel drivers from the pyramids area found some of unused ammunition and brought it back to the Giza area.

We know that during the troubled times of the Revolution, some of these people who own horses and camels near the pyramids began to move into the Giza area, and they even began to use the ancient tombs as stables for their horses and camels! The police were not there to stop them, so they were able to do whatever they like. Three of them brought the ammunition they had found in the desert and near Giza it detonated and injured the three men. Afterwards the police came to investigate and found the old ammunition in the desert. I want everyone to know that this problem was not close to the pyramid or any tombs, it was in an area no one uses. This was an accident that could happen in any place in the world. It is unfortunate that the three men were injured, but nothing else was damaged, so I do not want people to worry.
