The Italian embassy in the Egyptian capital of Cairo will partially resume its services next week, two weeks after a car bomb struck its building, the embassy announced. The embassy said in a statement that its visa and passport sections would resume work next week. “[This comes] despite the big difficulties facing the embassy’s work team and the scarcity of available venues within the embassy compared with normal days,” the statement said. On July 11, a car bomb went off outside the embassy in central Cairo, killing one person and destroying parts of the building. Daesh-linked “Province of Sinai” group later claimed the attack.
