Bomb Hits Egypt Army Intelligence Building

A bomb targeted an Egyptian military intelligence building north of Cairo on Sunday, wounding four soldiers, security officials said, in the second bomb attack on the security services in the Nile Delta in less than a week. The bomb went off near an entrance to the intelligence building in Belbeis, a town 65 miles north of Cairo. According to NBC News, it follows multiple suicide bomb attacks, specifically one on a police compound in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura on Tuesday that killed 16 people. An army statement said Sunday's blast had partially destroyed the back wall of the building. Two security sources described it as an explosive device, while the state-run Nile News TV station said it had been caused by a car bomb. "We will most probably not have any deaths," one of the security sources said.
