A bomb blast hit a tourist bus near Egypt's famed Giza pyramids Sunday, wounding at least 17 people, including South Africans, in the latest setback to the country's tourism industry. The roadside bomb went off as the bus was being driven in Giza, also causing injuries to Egyptians in a nearby car, medical and security sources said.Sunday's incident comes after three Vietnamese holidaymakers and their Egyptian guide were killed when a roadside bomb hit their bus as it traveled near the Giza pyramids outside Cairo in December.That figure was still far short of the record influx of 2010 when more than 14 million visitors flocked to see the country's sites.
