Two policemen killed in Alexandria bomb attack aimed at security director

Two policemen were killed and five more were injured in a bomb attack in Alexandria targeting the governorate’s security director, Reuters reports. No group or individual claimed responsibility for the attack, but the state news agency said it was part of the Ikhwan’s efforts to “disrupt” the presidential elections that kick off tomorrow, according to the newswire. The bomb was planted under a car and detonated as the security director was passing in a separate car, according to an Interior Ministry statement. The director was unharmed in the blast. The attack is receiving widespread coverage in the foreign press, as typified by reports from the Associated Press notes and the Wall Street Journal.
