Twenty people have been killed and 47 injured after a car bomb collided with other vehicles, triggering an explosion outside a cancer hospital in central Cairo.

The blast occurred around midnight local time on a road running alongside the Nile River in an area outside Egypt’s National Cancer Institute. Pictures taken just after the incident and published by Egypt’s largest newspaper, Al-Ahram, showed two burnt-out cars, with at least one completely blackened and dented from the force of the explosion.

Egypt’s interior ministry said a car carrying explosives drove into oncoming traffic and collided with three others, detonating its charge. It named Hasm, a violent offshoot of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood group, as the organisation responsible for the attack, and said a member of the group had been arrested in connection with the blast.

“I was waiting to use a bathroom inside the hospital around 12.30am when I heard a big explosion,” said Nermat al-Awady, who had travelled to the cancer centre from Minya so her child could receive treatment. Awady had intended to sleep outside the hospital with her child before queuing for treatment the following morning. “We ran to the main entrance of the hospital but it was on fire, so we left through another side door,” she said.
