CAIRO (AP) - A security official says a disgruntled employee of
a construction company in Egypt opened fire on his colleagues,
killing six and wounding 16 others.
The official said the gunman, a bus driver, pulled over the
company bus today in western Cairo, whipped out an assault rifle
and showered his passengers with bullets.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not
authorized to speak to the media.
According to the official, the gunman appeared to have suffered
severe depression after his company, Arab Contractors, transferred
him to a new position.
Arab Contractors is one of the largest construction companies in
Egypt. The company declined to comment on the incident.
