Jihadists Identify Cairo Suicide Bomber as Ex-major

Jihadists have released a video of a suicide bombing in which an ex-major tried to kill Egypt’s interior minister, and police said was expelled from the army for his extremism.

In the video posted on YouTube by the Sinai-based Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis, Walid Badr can be seen explaining his motives before detonating a car bomb close to a convoy carrying Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim.

The Al-Qaeda-inspired group had previously claimed responsibility for the September 5 attack outside Ibrahim’s home, which killed one person but did not harm the minister who was travelling in an armoured car.
