Bombing wave hits Egypt amid fear of more violence
By Asma Alsharif and Maggie Fick CAIRO (Reuters) - A wave of bomb attacks targeting police hit Cairo on Friday, killing six people on the eve of the third anniversary of the uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak and raising fears that an Islamist insurgency is gaining pace in Egypt. The violence underscored the struggle of authorities to tame militant violence which has increasingly challenged the state since the army toppled Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in July. In the most high-profile attack, a car bomb exploded at a security compound in central Cairo early in the morning and killed at least four people, including three policemen, security sources said. An explosion near a cinema on the road to the Pyramids of Giza on the outskirts of Cairo also led to one fatality.
