FIRE BURNING IN DISTANCE, LIGHTING UP SKYLINE AT NIGHT STORY: An explosion ripped through fuel tanks near Egypt's Cairo airport on Thursday (July 12) evening, igniting a fire in the area, but the country's civil aviation minister said air movement was unaffected.

The cause of the explosion was not immediately known.

Eyewitness video obtained by Reuters shows a large fire burning in distance, lighting up the Cairo skyline.

Egyptian state television reported that firefighters had brought the fire under control.

It said the tanks outside the airport perimeter belonged to a private company, which was not identified.

Egypt is battling an Islamist militant insurgency that has carried out attacks, mainly in the remote Sinai Peninsula, where the army has been conducting a security operation since February.
