Italian consulate in Egypt bombed, IS takes blame
The headquarters of the Italian consulate in central Cairo, Egypt was bombed on Saturday, taking one life. The militant group Islamic State (IS) claimed to be responsible for the attack.
The car bombing also resulted in the injuries of nine people including two policemen and bystanders, according to a health ministry spokesman.
IS’s attack served as a warning to Muslims to stay away from places like these. An IS tweet read: “We advise Muslims to stay away from these security dens, because they are legitimate targets for strikes of the mujahedeen.”
Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni reported, “Our thoughts are with the people affected and with our personnel. Italy will not let itself be intimidated.”
