Deadly molotov attack hits Cairo restaurant

Breaking News


A Molotov cocktail hurled at a Cairo restaurant has killed 16 people and wounded two on Friday, Egyptian security officials said.

One of the officials said the attacker was an employee who had been fired from the restaurant in the Agouza area in the center of the Egyptian capital, Reuters reported.

Victims of the blast were burned to death or died from smoke inhalation in the establishment. The restaurant, which also acts as a nightclub according to several media reports, was located in a basement and offered no escape routes, officials said.

Extremist militants have claimed a number of bombing and shooting attacks in Egypt, mostly against members of the security forces since the army toppled President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013 after mass protests.
