Egypt on Thursday vowed to strike "terrorism" with an "iron hand" after Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim survived a bomb attack against his convoy near his house in Cairo.

"The cabinet insists that this criminal act will not prevent the government from confronting terrorism with force and determination," the cabinet said.

It said the Egyptian government "will strike with an iron hand those who threaten national security until stability returns" across the country.
