ASSIUT (Reuter) - Three people were killed and 10 wounded when a bomb exploded on a train in Dayrut, a southern Egyptian town at the centre of months of violence between Muslim militants and police.

An elderly man, his two-year-old son and another man, whose body had been burnt beyond recognition, died in the blast. All those killed and injured were Egyptian. Police believe the bomb exploded in the unidentified man's hand when he tried to throw it out of the train at troops around Dayrut railway station.
