Nineteen dead in explosion due to Cairo car crash

Nineteen people died and 30 were injured in an explosion resulting from a car crash in central Cairo. There was no official statement indicating that the explosion was an attack.

The blast happened when a car driving against traffic on Cairo’s Nile corniche road collided with three other cars. It triggered a blaze that forced the partial evacuation of a nearby hospital, National Cancer Institute. Shortly after the explosion, blazing cars could be seen in the roadway as passers-by struggled to help the injured.
