12 er drept i et bensinbombeangrep mot en restaurant i Kairo. Seks er såret. En tidligere ansatt skal ha hevnet seg. Samtidig kan man ikke se bort fra at jihad-metoder kopieres.

Det kan bli vanskelig å skille på hva som er hva. Jihadistenes metoder, som utmerker seg ved hensynsløshet overfor sakesløse personer, har en smitteeffekt.

Denne copycat-effekt gjelder for annen kriminalitet, så hvorfor ikke for den politiske?

At least 12 people have reportedly been killed in a suspected petrol bomb attack at a restaurant in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

Six more people were wounded in the attack.

An Egyptian official said the attacker was a former employee who had been fired from the restaurant in the Agouza area in the centre of the city.

The restaurant, also a nightclub, was located in a basement, offering no escape route, the officials said.

Earlier reports had put the number of dead at 18.

Islamist militants have claimed a number of bombings and shootings in Egypt, mostly aimed at security forces, since the army toppled former president Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013 after mass protests.
