The blast occurred near the Tolip Hotel on Saturday afternoon in Rushdi, a neighbourhood in Egypt's second city, close to the motorcade of Major General Mostafa al-Nemr, the head of security in Alexandria, an Egyptian security source told Al Jazeera.

A vehicle bomb killed two people and injured several others in the centre of the Egyptian port city of Alexandria on Saturday, officials said.
