A blast in central Cairo killed at least four people and wounded dozens of others on Friday (January 24).
Security sources said the explosion near the police headquarters was likely caused by a car bomb.
The dead included three policemen.
The blast damaged a building and sent smoke rising above the city centre.
State television said gunmen opened fire on buildings after the explosion.
Islamist militants have increased attacks on security forces, since last July, when the army toppled President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
It comes before the third anniversary of the uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak.
