A CAR bomb has exploded outside the police headquarters in downtown Cairo.

At least three people have been killed in the blast, according to state TV, and dozens of people are feared injured.

The explosion sent a large plume of smoke billowing across the Egyptian capital’s skyline and left a deep crater in the street.

“It was a car bomb,” interior ministry spokesman Hany Abdel Latif told AFP.

Pictures from the scene showed the facade of the police HQ turned to rubble.

Egyptian state TV reported that casualties were being rushed to Ahmed Maher & Gomhuria hospitals as security forces converged on the area.
A large number of ambulances were on hand.

There were also reports of gunfire in the area immediately after the blast.
