World News : A blast Wednesday at a police station in a Nile Delta city killed one person and wounded 28, a medic said, in the latest incidence of violence sweeping Egypt since president Mohamed Morsi’s ouster.
Mohamed Sultan, deputy head of the emergency services, told an explosive device went off very early in the morning outside a police station in the city of Mansura, in Dahqaliya province.
He put the toll at “28 wounded and one dead”, while state media reported that the dead man was a police conscript.
A previous toll from security sources said that the explosion had wounded eight members of the security forces.
The blast came after clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi, deposed by the military on July 3, killed at least 13 people across Egypt since Monday. AFP
