Egyptian security sources say an investigation has been launched into the murder of three children in the capital, Cairo.

Their bodies were found with their throats cut in the western suburb of Giza.

Local residents have speculated that the children may have fallen victim to traffickers who trade in body organs.

But the security forces say it is too early to say what led to the killings.
