Twelve people have been killed and five others wounded in a firebomb attack on a nightclub in Cairo, Egypt's state-run news agency said.

Three men on a motorcycle threw Molotov cocktails into the club in the Agouza district early on Friday and then fled, according to an unnamed security official.

MENA said the fire was quickly extinguished and security authorities are investigating the attack.
