Transcript for Urgent travel warning after bomb near Egyptian pyramids
Now to new concerns about tourists travel in Egypt after that bombing of a bus near the pyramids that injured 17 people. Our foreign correspondent James Longman is tracking the latest. Good morning, James. Reporter: Good morning, Michael. Thankfully no one was killed but the U.S. Embassy in Cairo issuing a statement saying that they're not aware of any injuries to U.S. Citizens at this time but they're warning people to please avoid this area and to monitor local media for updates. At least 17 people were injured including several south African three of the injured were taken to the hospital and take a look at the damage to the bus, windows on one side totally blown out by the roadside bomb and the force of the blast damaging a nearby car. I guess I'm going to ask James -- I don't know if James is still there. Oh, James, you are. Reporter: I am. We want to know did anyone claim responsibility for the attack. Reporter: No, Michael, not so far. The government has been fighting islamic militants and it happened just a few hundred yards away from the new national museum being built. That is meant to boost tourism on which Egypt relies but bombings like these are a big blow. It's the second attack in less than six months. In December three Vietnamese tourist and their local guide were killed. Michael. Big blow, indeed. Thank you so much, James.
