At least 12 people were injured and taken to hospital after an explosion on Thursday night in a chemicals factory outside Egypt’s main airport in Cairo.
A plume of smoke could be seen rising from at the scene of the explosion:
Egyptian army spokesman said the blast was caused by high temperatures in a storage facility belonging to a local petrochemicals company.
Aviation Minister Younis al-Masri said air traffic at the airport was unaffected by the explosion, which could be heard across the area.
A four-year-old boy ended up in an Egyptian court charged with assault after accused of kissing his classmate, three.
The boy’s father – told the privately-owned al-Mehwar TV their nightmare had started after the girl’s father saw him kissing her.
But it was finally ended after a judge sitting in a juvenile misdemeanour court in Damanhour, north-west of Cairo, decided to throw the case out.
The judge even hugged the boy before letting him go.
Photos of the boy and his father smiling broadly as they left court have been widely shared on social media.
But many have questioned how the case even came to be.
