Homemade bomb explodes outside polling station in Egypt

CAIRO - A homemade bomb exploded outside a polling station in the Egyptian city of El-Mahalla El-Kubra on Monday, state TV reported, on the first day of voting in presidential elections.

Egypt has faced a surge in violence after the army ousted the country's first democratically elected president Mohamed Morsi in July following mass protests against his rule and announced a roadmap that would see presidential and parliamentary elections this year.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.
