At least four have been injured in an explosion near the Sharqiya Governorate’s Military Intelligence Headquarters in the city of Anshas midday Sunday, according to state TV.
The blast is believed to have been caused by a car laden with explosives detonating near the intelligence building, Director of Sharqiya’s Criminal Investigations Office Atef Khedr told Al-Ahram’s Arabic news website.
Army Spokesman Ahmed Ali confirmed on his official Facebook page Sunday that four soldiers had been injured by the blast which partially destroyed the building’s rear façade. He condemned the terrorist attacks targeting Egypt’s military and state facilities.
A security official told state news agency MENA Egyptian security forces have arrested a suspect in the explosion.
