Egypt VP Targeted in Assassination Attempt That Killed Two Bodyguards, Sources Tell Fox News

February 4, 2011

An assassination attempt on the Egyptian vice president left two of his bodyguards dead, sources told Fox News Channel on Friday.

The unsuccessful attempt to kill Omar Suleiman reportedly came in the past couple of days as violent unrest rocked the capital Cairo.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs would not comment on the matter when asked Friday.

Fox News Channel said it had not been able to independently confirm the story on the ground in Cairo.

Meantime, an AFP correspondent reported that gunshots erupted Friday for a few minutes at Cairo’s central Tahrir Square at the epicenter of protests against President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year grip on power.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs declined to address the assassination reports when asked by Fox News.

“I’m not going to … get into that question,” Gibbs said.
