    Passengers in a tourist bus in Egypt are being treated in hospital after a bomb exploded as they were passing the Giza Pyramids.

    Twenty-five South Africans were on board.

    The attack comes as Egypt's government tries to revive its once-thriving tourism industry after years of violence and political unrest.
