Huge car bomb attack on Egypt police HQ kills 15

- +

A suspected suicide car bombing outside an Egyptian police headquarters killed at least 15 people Tuesday in one of the deadliest attacks since the military overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi. 

Egyptians carry the body of one of the people killed in a car bomb attack earlier in the day, during his funeral in the Egyptian city of Mansura, North of Cairo, on December 24, 2013

The explosion in a city north of Cairo, which military-installed authorities suggested was carried out by Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, comes as the country is bitterly polarised over the president's ouster, with more than 1,000 people killed in months of unrest.
