In Pictures: Attack on National Security headquarters in Qaliubiya leaves 29 injured

‘Islamic State’ claims revenge for ‘Arab Sharkas’ convicts



The self-proclaimed “lslamic State” group (IS) claimed responsibility for an attack on the National Security headquarters in Shubra Al-Kheima, Qaliubiya. At least 29 people were injured in a car bomb at around 2am on Thursday, officials said.

According to the statement attributed to IS, the attack was “to avenge six young men who were executed last March, after being charged of forming a terrorist cell in Qaliubiya named ‘Arab Sharkas’”. Their death by hanging sparked controversy, especially among rights organisations such as Human Rights Watch.
