Terrorist attack(s)

ETA: There have been at least two more attacks since I posted this entry this morning. :-<  Will be staying home.

A car bomb went off this morning outside the Cairo Security Directorate, about 5.5 miles from our house, as the crow flies.  I heard the explosion, even with my earplugs in. At least 2 dead and 40 wounded. :(  We had an appointment with our doctor at the clinic* where we'll be giving birth; I think today is not the day to do it.

* a few miles away from the police HQ that was bombed.
