CAIRO — A trio of explosions in the Egyptian capital today, one of them an apparent vehicle bomb in front of a downtown security headquarters, killed at least five people and injured scores of others, according to officials and state media reports.

Four of the deaths were reported at the security headquarters, where the powerful early-morning explosion sheared off the building’s façade, shattered windows over a wide radius and damaged a museum building directly across the street.
