CAIRO, April 2 (Reuters) - One person was killed in a third explosion at Cairo University on Wednesday shortly after twin bombs killed a police brigadier general there, security officials said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the violence but Islamist militants have carried out similar operations against police and soldiers. (Writing by Michael Georgy; Editing by Alison Williams)
