Huge car bomb attack in Egypt kills 15


MANSOURA, Egypt: A suspected suicide car bombing outside an Egyptian police headquarters killed at least 15 people on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) in one of the deadliest attacks since the military overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi. The explosion in a city north of Cairo, which military-installed authorities suggested was carried out by Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, comes as the country is bitterly polarized over the president’s ouster, with more than 1,000 people killed in months of unrest. The Muslim Brotherhood, which publicly renounced violence decades ago, condemned the bombing. Analysts said the attack was likely the work of more radical Islamists, who have carried out a string of similar attacks in the Sinai peninsula targeting security forces.
