CAIRO (Reuters) - A bomb exploded at a police station in a province north of Cairo early on Wednesday, wounding five police officers, two security sources told Reuters.

Unknown assailants threw the bomb from a passing car in Mansoura, the capital of Dakhalia province, they said.

The explosion occurred after a day of clashes between opponents and Islamist supporters of Egypt's deposed president, Mohamed Mursi, killed nine people in Cairo.
