14 killed in Egypt bombing

Dec 23 2013, 9:12pm CST | by

Cairo, Dec 24 (IANS) At least 14 were killed and 130 wounded early Tuesday as a powerful explosion ripped through a security headquarters in Egypt's Nile Delta city of Mansoura, reports said.

Cairo, Dec 24 — At least 14 were killed and 130 wounded early Tuesday as a powerful explosion ripped through a security headquarters in Egypt's Nile Delta city of Mansoura, reports said.

The semi-official Ahram newspaper posted on its website that three bombs had been planted out of which two went off almost at the same time, reported Xinhua.

The third one in a car nearby was defused, the website quoted an anonymous security official as saying.

The attack took place at the Nile Delta Governorate of Daqahliya, official news agency MENA said, adding that a nearby five-store bank building collapsed and dozens of vehicles were wrecked due to the strong explosion.

Most of the victims were police conscripts, Omar el-Shawatqi, governor of Daqahliya, told reporters.

"They have been rushed to nearby hospitals," he said. Mansoura is the capital of the Daqahliya Governorate.

The head of Mansoura's security directorate was among the injured and the death toll is expected to increase, as more people are still trapped inside the building, he added.

Interim Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi said the bombing was a terrorist attack and vowed to severely punish the attackers.

On Tuesday, he also declared Muslim Brotherhood, the country's oldest and most influential Islamist movement, as a terrorist group, official news agency MENA reported.

Tensions are running high in Egypt since the fall of former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in early July, with a string of bombings attacks taking place countrywide.

Much of the Islamist militants based in the restive northern Sinai Peninsula were blamed for the attacks. The military then launched an offensive to crack down on them.

Now That the Guns Have Been Silenced

Aug 28 2014 10:29am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The new ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has immediately raised the same old question: Will it last, or is it merely just another pause, providing the prelude for the next round of fighting à la previous ceasefires? My reading of the situation that brought both sides to agree to suspend violence on an open-ended basis suggests otherwise. I believe the current ceasefire is different as it was achieved under completely different circumstances and may well last. To begin wit ...

Gaza: Some Secrets Few Will Say Aloud

Is everyone in Gaza crazy? Did they deserve what happened to them? I was flying through the Phoenix airport this summer, stopped for lunch, and found myself sitting next to two men who were loudly discussing the recent Israeli bombing of Gaza. "They deserved what they got." "Israel should bomb them back to the stone age." "Gaza is nothing but a den of terrorists." I quickly figured out that I had to cha ...

'Cold War:' Egypt Kept Secret Strikes Against Libya from US Due to 'Deep Distrust of Obama Administration'

Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) carried out airstrikes in Libya a week ago but did not tell the United States government. New York Times correspondent David Kirkpatrick said it is because the new government does not trust the Obama administration. “Well, we know they were carried out by the United Arab Emirates from bases in Egypt,” he told NPR radio. “And we know both governments at best tried to keep those strikes secret and behind the scenes.

Ex-archbishop: Ban jihadis from Britain

(DAILYMAIL) — The menacing advance of the Islamic State in Iraq should not prejudice Western people against Muslim people and the Islamic faith. I once served as an airman in Egypt and Iraq and can vouch for the kindness and goodness of many Muslim people. Indeed, more than three million have made their home in Britain, and by far the majority want to get on and make good and peaceful homes among us. But there is a darker side. ...
