Egyptians gather after a powerful explosion believed to be caused by a car bomb rocked a police headquarters in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura, 110 kilometers (70 miles) north of Cairo, early on Tuesday, killing more than a dozen people and wounding dozens, according to the state news agency and a security official. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing, which came a day after an al-Qaida-inspired group called on police and army personnel to desert or face death at the hands of its fighters.
