Al Jazeera reports:

“The attack was mounted by eight armed men, said police and an
interior ministry official on Thursday. Four out of the eight are
believed to have been killed in clashes with security forces.

‘A terrorist group infiltrated the company, which is next to our
building,’ said Kamal Amin, spokesman for the human rights ministry,
which has offices next door.

‘For the safety of our employees, we have taken all necessary security
measures and we have evacuated our building.’

Security forces sealed off the surrounding area, which is home to
other government offices, including the headquarters of the transport
ministry and a human rights ministry building.'”
