CAIRO (Reuter) - An Egyptian killed when a bomb blasted a Cairo cafe has been identified as one of the people who planted the device, said the Egyptian Interior Minister, Abdel-Halim Moussa.

He said 'extremist groups,' the government's term for Muslim militants, carried out the attack. The bombing killed three people, among them a Swedish tourist, and injured 16. 'The terrorist Imad Abdel- Basit, who died in the cafe . . . was one of those who planted the bomb,' Mr Moussa said.
