Six Egyptian army soldiers were injured on Saturday in a terrorist attack outside a military intelligence headquarters in the canal city of Ismailia, the Egyptian army said.

"This terrorist act is a continuation of coward terrorist operations staged by 'groups of darkness' against the Egyptian people, military installations and vital state facilities," army spokesman Ahmed Mohamed Ali said in a Facebook statement.

The statement did not say whether the injured were soldiers or civilians.

But the spokesman described the injuries as "minor".

He said that the attack caused minor damage to the outer wall of the intelligence headquarters.

Ahmed al-Ansari, the head of the ambulance authority, said that five people were injured in the blast.

Egypt has remained in a state of turmoil since the military deposed elected president Mohamed Morsi on July 3 following massive protests against his presidency.
