Video shows suicide bomber killing 16 in Egypt

CAIRO (AP) - An al-Qaida inspired group in Egypt has posted a video online showing a suicide bomber attacking a security headquarters in Mansoura that killed 16 people in December.

The video by Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, or the Champions of Jerusalem, identified the suicide bomber as Imam Mahfouz or Abu Mariam. It said that he was injured in Islamist demonstrations against the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi by the military.

The comment is the first time a suicide bomber has been linked to demonstrating Moors supporters.

The video was posted on website often used by the group and it corresponded to earlier reporting done by The Associated Press.

On Wednesday, the United States designated the group a foreign terrorist organization. The group has claimed the deadliest attacks in Egypt since the overthrow.
