Jihadists claim attack on Cairo satellite dish
CAIRO (AFP) - A jihadist group on Tuesday claimed responsibility for an attack on a Cairo satellite communications dish it said was an "infidel mouthpiece" of Egypt's military-installed authorities.
On Monday, assailants fired rocket-propelled grenades at the dish in Cairo's upscale Maadi district, a day after clashes between Islamists and the security forces killed at least 57 people in Egypt - 48 of them in the capital alone.
"Your brothers in Al-Furqan announce the targeting of the headquarters of communication, the tongue of the pharaohs, with two RPGs so that the media of the infidels know we are coming," the group said in a YouTube video showing footage of the attack.
"Your enemy is the enemy of God and its officers and soldiers who are killing you are like soldiers of the pharaohs. They are infidels until they return to the religious path," the group said in a statement.
