Egypt PM calls bombing 'worst kind' of terrorism

MANSOURA, Egypt (AP) -

Egypt's interim Prime Minister says the bombing of a police headquarters outside of Cairo that left 13 killed is the "worst kind of terrorism" against the state, vowing his government will face it "decisively" and legally.

Hazem el-Beblawi said Tuesday the bombing in Mansoura was part of a series of violations against Egyptians security, linking such attacks on security forces with the campaign of protests by supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.

He called the attack a "maximum offense" to Egypt and will be dealt with decisively and according to the law, without elaborating.

El-Beblawi said his government has been working to implement a court order banning the Muslim Brotherhood, to which Morsi belongs. Pressure is mounting on el-Beblawi to declare the group a terrorist organization.
