Molotov cocktail kills 16 people at Cairo restaurant right after dispute

CAIRO A Molotov cocktail hurled at a Cairo restaurant killed 16 people and wounded two on Friday, Egyptian security officials mentioned.

One of the officials stated the attacker was an employee who had been fired from the restaurant in the Agouza location in the center of the Egyptian capital.

The victims were burned to death or died from smoke inhalation. The restaurant, also a nightclub, was positioned in a basement, supplying no escape route, the officials said.

The interior ministry said an initial investigation indicated that the Molotov was hurled after a dispute erupted in between restaurant workers and others.
