At least 11 killed, over 100 wounded in big blast in Egypt's Nile Delta
By Yasmine Saleh CAIRO (Reuters) - At least 11 people were killed and more than 100 wounded in a massive explosion at a security compound in Egypt's Nile Delta city of Mansoura in Dakahlyia province on Tuesday, a month before a vote on a new constitution key to transition from military-backed rule. Cabinet spokesman Sherief Shawki blamed the blast on the Muslim Brotherhood group of former Islamist President Mohamed Mursi, and said Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi had officially declared the group a terrorist organization. Suicide attacks on soldiers and policemen have sharply risen in Egypt since the army ousted Mursi in July amid mass unrest against his rule. The state-run Middle East News Agency quoted Beblawi as saying that those responsible for blast "will not escape punishment".
