CAIRO, Dec 24 (Aswat Masriya) - Preliminary results of investigating the blast that targeted a security compound in Mansoura suggest that a suicide bomber carried out the operation, Egypt's Ministry of Interior said.
A car bomb exploded early on Tuesday at a security compound in Nile Delta's Mansoura, killing 14 people and injuring 134 others in one of the bloodiest attacks since the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Mursi in July.
Preliminary results "suggest that a suicide bomber drove a car loaded with explosives through security checkpoints and blew it up", the ministry said in a statement on Facebook.
Some body parts and scattered car parts were found, the statement said.
Egypt's presidency has declared public mourning for three days and said that it will relentlessly combat terrorism.
