Cairo restaurant firebomb attack kills 16
Sixteen people have been killed in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, after firebombs were thrown into a restaurant.
The attack happened in the Agouza area, in the city centre.
Egypt's interior ministry said it appeared to have followed a row between workers and others at the venue, which also housed a nightclub.
Media reports say three masked men threw the devices into the venue before fleeing.
The restaurant was in the basement of the building, making it harder for people to escape, media reports.
The victims died from burns or the effects of inhaling smoke, the agency said. At least five other people were injured.
