A powerful explosion ripped through the Egyptian Embassy in the Pakistani capital today, killing at least eight people and wounding many more, some seriously, authorities said. It wasn't immediately known what caused the explosion, but police at the scene said they were operating on the assumption that it was a bomb. At least 12 ambulances raced to the embassy, where witnesses reported seeing six bodies pulled from the rubble. Outside, on the sprawling lawns, several employees lay wounded.

With the devastating car bombing of the Egyptian Embassy in Pakistan on Sunday, Islamic hard-liners battling the Cairo government apparently have served notice that they are carrying their terror campaign to foreign soil. Pakistani Foreign Minister Sardar Aseff Ahmad Ali said the "dastardly" attack in the capital, Islamabad, which killed 15 people and left scores more injured, was the work of a suicide bomber "who may have blasted his way through the gate and exploded his pickup truck."
