At least 16 people have been killed in a suspected petrol bomb attack at a restaurant in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
Two others were wounded in the attack.
An Egyptian official said the attacker was a former employee who had been fired from the restaurant in the Agouza area in the centre of the city.
The restaurant, also a nightclub, was located in a basement, offering no escape route, the officials said.
Police have launched a manhunt after the perpetrators fled the scene.
Earlier reports had put the number of dead at 18.
Islamist militants have claimed a number of bombings and shootings in Egypt, mostly aimed at security forces, since the army toppled former president Mohammed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013 after mass protests.
