Islamic State militants have said they were behind a deadly explosion that severely damaged the Italian consulate in Egypt’s capital, Cairo.

At least one person died and several people were injured when a car bomb went off at the building.

A tweet from a Twitter account linked to IS said Muslims should stay away from sites like the consulate, as they are “legitimate targets” for strikes.
