American stabbed outside US Embassy in Cairo
Cairo: An Egyptian security official says an American national was attacked and stabbed outside the US Embassy in Cairo.

According to the official, the American was rushed to a nearby hospital. He said police arrested the attacker who is now being interrogated. The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to talk to the media.
