At least five people were killed and seven others injured after a landmine exploded near Egypt’s Red Sea resort city of Hurghada Saturday, Youm7 reported. The explosion took place Saturday early morning on the Safaga-Hurghada road in Egypt’s eastern desert, security source told Youm7.

According to media reports, those killed were transported to the morgue at the Safaga hospital while those who were injured are in critical condition and were escorted to Hurghada International Hospital.

Initial investigations suggest the landmine is one of millions laid by the Axis forces led by the German leader Rommel in Egypt’s western and eastern deserts to cover up his withdrawal from Alamain and prevent pursuit by the Allied forces during the World War II.
