U.S. Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) experts are working with their Egyptian counterparts as part of an Explosive Incident Countermeasures Course. The course is training new Egyptian EOD instructors, and new Egyptian bomb technicians in coordination with the Egyptian Ministry of Interior. Recognizing different kinds of explosives and explosive incidents is an important part of the anti-terrorism training we are providing for our Egyptian partners, and a critical part of the support that the U.S. provides to help Egyptian police and security services keep Egypt safe.
