Car bomb at police HQ in Egypt city kills 14: Medics
CAIRO (AFP) - A powerful 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 the explosion in the city, north of Cairo, was massive and a part of the building had caved in.
Medics said the bombing wounded more than 100 people.
