14 killed in car bomb at Egyptian city police HQ
(12-24 09:06)

A car bomb tore through a police headquarters in the Egyptian city of Mansoura early Tuesday, killing at least 14 people, mostly policemen, medics and officials said.
The bombing comes just weeks before Egypt holds a referendum on a new constitution that is billed by the country's military-installed authorities as the first step towards democratic rule after the army ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July.
Egyptian security sources said a part of the building had caved in.
Medics said the bombing wounded more than 100 people.—AFP
