Egypt Minister Survives Bomb Attack

Egypt’s Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim survived an assassination attempt which occurred in Cairo on Thursday morning. A bomb attack had targeted his convoy but the leader appeared unharmed when making a televised stament several hours later. Ibrahim claimed that “a wave of terrorism by opponents of the military-installed government was just beginning,” Reuters reported.
