AFP A car bomb struck a police base in the Egyptian canal city of Suez on Saturday, wounding at least four people in an attack earlier blamed on a rocket.

The booby-trapped car exploded on a street next to the base, General Abdel Fattah Othman told the private ONTV television.

An police spokesman had earlier said a rocket caused the explosion. Security officials said the attack wounded four people.

It came the day after four bombings targeted police in Cairo, killing six people, and amid heightened tensions on the anniversary of the start of the 2011 revolt that toppled Hosni Mubarak.
