A car bomb struck Cairo police headquarters on Friday, killing at least three people in an early morning blast heard across the Egyptian capital, police and health ministry officials said.
The explosion sent a large plume of smoke billowing above the city and left a deep crater in the street, an AFP correspondent reported.
"It was a car bomb," interior ministry spokesman Hany Abdel Latif told AFP.
State television reported at least three dead and 35 wounded in the explosion, which blew out the windows of the building in the central Cairo district of Abdeen.
