Two bombs exploded outside a large hotel in Egypt where election judges were staying at the city of al-Arish on Tuesday, killing at least one person, reports Al Arabiya. A car bomb exploded near the hotel of Al-Arish, the capital of the North Sinai governorate and one of the largest cities in the Sinai peninsula.
The blasts in the city of al-Arish came a day after the second round of a parliamentary election closed. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Voting for the parliamentary elections to elect members of the 596-seat Parliament has taken place amid increased violence and terrorism. The blast took place just after the second stage of the parliamentary elections.
