Egypt's army on Wednesday foiled a car bombing at a military checkpoint outside Cairo by blowing up the vehicle and its driver, army spokesman Muhammad Samir said.

"The Egyptian armed forces prevented a terrorist car bomb attack at a military checkpoint on the highway between Katameya and Suez," said Samir.

"The explosives-laden car was destroyed and its driver was killed in the operation," he added.

Jihadist groups have stepped up terrorist attacks in Egypt since the 2013 ouster of Egypt's democratically elected president, Islamist Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, who was in June sentenced to death for his role in a mass jailbreak.
