One person died and another was injured when unknown assailants attacked a KFC restaurant in the Nile Delta governorate of Menoufiya, state news agency MENA reported.

Eye witnesses said unidentified assailants on a motorcycle kept shooting from an automatic weapon and threw Molotov cocktails at the restaurant, resulting in the death of one restaurant worker and the injury of another.

Civil protection forces along with security forces went to the scene to extinguish the fire.

Bombings and attacks have become frequent since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 amid nationwide protests against his rule. 

Last week, militant group Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis claimed responsibility for a series of attacks in the North Sinai town of Al-Arish that killed 30 and injured dozens, including at least nine civilians.

Desperation by the defeated feeble Muslim brotherhood terrorists.
Attacking a KFC really? ..... The President should do what the King of Jordan did. Start lining up the executions from death row. Every explosion gets countered by executions. That way you make room in the prison system, and double the price terrorists pay for their violence.

The Jordanian king sacrificed his pilot for American handout
Needless to say, this is an expression of treason and cheapness of character. Besides, Mossad internet agents are in no position to tell us Jordanians what to do. In the final analysis our enemy is Nazi Israel, not Syrian or Iraqi villagers. Our pilot should have died defending the Aqsa Mosque, not killing and maimiung Muslims.

Eventually, they will return and you will run away like a rat
Mubarak was parroting the same nonsense...The Islamists are morphing your morbid dream into a nightmare.
