"The US condemns in the strongest possible terms this terrorist attack on the Dakaliya security directorate in Mansoura," State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said on Tuesday.
At least 15 people were killed and about 150 others injured yesterday when the powerful car bomb ripped through the multi-storey police headquarter in Mansoura, a city in Nile delta north of Cairo.
"We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims, and we hope for the quick recovery of the injured," Psaki said.
She said US stands firmly with the Egyptian people as they work to put their country on the path towards democracy, stability and economic prosperity, in an atmosphere free from violence.

Hours after the bombing, Egypt's interim Prime Minister Hazem Beblawi labelled the Muslim Brotherhood as a "terrorist" group, accusing them of orchestrating the attack.
