Residents of Mansoura have attacked property belonging to a member of the Muslim Brotherhood after a bomb attack in the city was blamed on the group.

Fifteen people died and 134 were injured on Tuesday morning when a large bomb ripped through the Nile Delta city's security directorate. The city council building, a state-owned theatre, a bank and a number of police vehicles were also damaged in the attack.

Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim claimed the attack was in retaliation for the violent dispersal of two pro-Mohamed Morsi protest camps in Cairo that left over 600 people dead in August.

The Brotherhood has denied involvement in the attack.

A building belonging to Abdel-Rahman El-Bar, a leading Brotherhood member, was ransacked by a group of angry locals, state news agency MENA reported.

They removed furniture and threw it in a nearby stream.

Hundreds marched at the funeral of 12 policeman and one civilian killed in the attack, AP reported.

Following the funeral, local people torched the car of a man who made a four-fingered hand gesture indicating support for the pro-Morsi protesters killed in August.

Crowds gathered outside the security directorate holding posters reading "No to terrorist groups" and pictures of army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sissi. They chanted "The people want to execute the Brotherhood."

Ignorant or liar?
Are you ignorant of the truth? Or are you a liar? Or are you a propagation of hate yourself??? The Copts have nothing yo do with the bomb or the counter attack. You expose your real motivations in making such an illogical and dishonest connection between this senseless violence and the Copts.

WHO ARE YOU KIDDING AHMED??
Your brotherhood terrorists have already ATTACKED AND DESTROYED over 50 Churches. THAT is not a bogus number like MB followers make up. You have already vandalized Universities and now the Guv. building in Mansoura. Rabaa was not a place of warship it was the Muslim brotherhoods terrorist nest. So there was neither genocide or massacres there. Your terrorists wanted death and resistance against the EGYPTIAN forces and they GOT what they asked for. Mansoura EXPOSES to everyone what kind of people comprise the MB.

There was no terrorism under Morsi, It only started under Sisi's fascist government
If you kill innocent people than definitely many people would revolt and kill in retaliation, you can not blame any one else except your own fascist government which destroyed the democratically elected government of Egypt.

Shame on you
Shame on you don't be a blind sheep. Use your own brain. Everybody in the world know who is responsible for the bloodshed in Egypt . The brotherhood will never come back never. The Egyptian people have woken up they won't be fooled again by people selling religion. We are good god feeling people Muslims and Christians we don't need these terrorists amongst us. They are not Islam they don't represent our great deen. They represent power terrorism.
