A roadside bomb hit a tourist bus near the Pyramids of Giza, south of the capital Cairo, on Friday, killing three Vietnamese tourists and their Egyptian guide.

The explosion is believed to have taken place on the Mariouteya Road, which is a popular street with tourists. The pyramids are in that region.

A statement by the public prosecutor's office said 11 other tourists from Vietnam and an Egyptian bus driver were wounded when the homemade device exploded. "The police forces have left to go to the scene, the circumstances are being clarified", the ministry said.

CNN's Hossam Ahmed reported from Cairo and Mohammed Tawfeeq reported and wrote from Atlanta.

Without advising authorities, the bus deviated from the route established by the interior ministry for vehicles bringing visitors to Giza, Madbuli said.

The bus was carrying a total of 14 Vietnamese tourists, it added, saying only two of them escaped unharmed.
