Powerful Blast Damages Cairo's Islamic Museum

A suicide bomber in a car blew himself up in the parking lot of a top security compound in central Cairo on Friday (January 24), killing at least four people in one of the most high-profile attacks on the state in months, security sources said. The early morning explosion damaged the Cairo Security Directorate, which includes police and state security, and sent smoke rising over the capital, raising concerns that an Islamist insurgency is gathering pace.
