CAIRO, March 13 (UPI) -- An attack on a military bus Thursday killed one soldier and injured three other military personnel in eastern Cairo, an army representative said.

Ahram Online said two gunmen riding a motorcycle opened fire on the army bus as it was traveling in al-Amireya in eastern Cairo. The attackers then fled the scene.

An army representative blamed the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood for the attack, but another security representative said militant Ansar Beit al-Maqdis was to blame, Ahram Online said.

A judiciary official said the investigation into the attack would be supervised by a military prosecutor.

Ahram Online said attacks on police and army targets have increased since the July ouster of President Mohamed Morsi, a Brotherhood follower.
