AFP- A car bomb struck Cairo police headquarters on Friday, killing at least four people in an early morning blast heard across theEgyptian capital, police and health ministry officials said.
The explosion sent a large plume of smoke billowing above the city and left a deep crater in the street, an AFP correspondent reported.
The attack came a day before police were to deploy across the capital for the third anniversary of the uprising against Hosni Mubarak, with Islamists calling for mass protests against the new regime.
“It was a car bomb,” interior ministry spokesman Hany Abdel Latif told AFP.
The health ministry said at least four people were killed and 51 wounded.
