CAIRO (AP) — Egypt security officials say that initial investigations show a car bomb was used in an attack that targeted the convoy of the interior minister.
The minister survived the attack Thursday. Officials involved in the investigation say early results show that parked car was laden with explosives and blew up when Mohammed Ibrahim's convoy passed.
A badly mangled body was found near the car, and investigators are working to determine whether it is that of a bystander, an attacker or a lookout tasked with giving word when the convoy passed, the officials said.
They spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.
At least 22 people were wounded.
The assassination attempt is the first such attack since the July 3 coup that toppled the country's Islamist president.
