CAIRO - Three police were wounded on Monday when a bomb exploded under a traffic sentry post near a Cairo court house, security sources said, in the latest in a series of attacks to hit the Egyptian capital.

The explosion occurred in the affluent northeastern Heliopolis district, they said.

Egyptian authorities have pledged to end a wave of Islamist militant violence that has swept across the country, but sporadic attacks on high-profile locations in the city and elsewhere have continued.

No one claimed immediate responsibility for Monday's bomb, in which a health ministry spokesman confirmed three people were wounded.
