Security officials in Egypt began to interrogate eight men suspected of belonging to a terrorist cell in Nasr City, the Egyptian media reported.
The suspects are accused of possessing weapons and plotting to assassinate public figures with the aim of overthrowing Egypt's government.
Security forces suspect that the alleged terrorist cell planned to attack Egypt's interior ministry in Cairo and to assassinate political figures, according to Egyptian media reports.
The terror suspect who died in the attack allegedly tried to throw a bomb at police, which detonated in the apartment, killing him, the al-Ahram newspaper reported.
According to Egyptian newspaper al-Masry al-Youm, the FBI assisted Egyptian security officials uncover the cell, which was allegedly involved in last month's terrorist attack on the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, in which the ambassador, Chris Stevens, and three other Americans were killed.
