  • Deadly car explosion hits Egyptian capital Cairo report

The incident occurred in Cairo's Manyal neighborhood near the National Cancer Institute when a speeding vehicle driving against traffic slammed into three other cars, causing the explosion, officials said.

The explosion caused a blaze that forced the partial evacuation of the National Cancer Institute, Egypt's Health Ministry said.

It accused a militant group known as Hasm, which has links to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, saying it was moving the auto to carry out an attack elsewhere.

Egypt has just hosted the Africa Cup of Nations football tournament, which involved a massive security operation in Cairo and elsewhere to guard against attacks.

Onlookers and Egyptian security forces gather around a charred vehicle, following an accident just before midnight on August 4, 2019, outside the National Cancer Institute in central Cairo.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi pledged to eradicate "this brutal terrorism".

The explosion occurred because of a auto that contained explosives and drove wrong-way to crash into three other cars in front of the building.

In 2015, the Islamic State affiliate in Sinai asserted responsibility for the downing of a Russian passenger plane after it left the Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh.

In May, an explosion targeting a tourist bus injured at least 12 people, mostly South African tourists, near the Giza pyramids.

TV footage showed the windows of a nearby building were smashed.

The health ministry said the injured people were taken to hospitals for treatment. Zaid added that the search continues for other bodies that could have fallen into the Nile River in front of the hospital.

The Attorney General's Office has sent a team to the scene of the incident to begin the official investigation.
