An al-Qaeda inspired group claimed responsibility on Saturday for four bombings which rocked the Egyptian capital, killing six people a day earlier.

Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, or “Partisans of al-Aqsa Mosque”, also called in iAnsar Beit al-Maqdis logots statement for Muslims to stay away from police buildings.

The group had previously taken responsibility for some of the deadliest bombings across the country following the military's overthrow of Muslim Brotherhood’s president Mohammad Mursi last July.

The group, in a statement posted on a website used by extremist militants, said it remotely detonated a car bomb outside Cairo police headquarters on Friday morning that killed four people, and followed up the attack with three other bombings across the capital.

"In this context, we repeat our call to our people in Egypt to avoid security and police installations, because we are trying very hard to avoid harming Muslims," the statement added.
