As recently as June ISIS has vowed to bomb Egypt’s pyramids.

Via Express:

AT LEAST six people have been killed in a bomb attack on a road leading to the Great Pyramid of Giza – a tourist attraction popular with British holidaymakers.

The explosion appeared to have come from a rubbish bin in Cairo along a route used to access the entrance to the world heritage site, which lies in a western suburb of the capital.

Giza, one of the the seven wonders of the world and the only one to remain largely intact, welcomes thousands of British tourists every year.

However the dead are said to all be policemen and administrative officers working close to the landmark.

There have been no confirmed foreign casualties although four civilians were also injured.
