A group of young men firebombed a nightclub in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, following a dispute after two of them were not let in early Friday, setting off a blaze that killed 16 people and wounded three, authorities said.Interior Ministry spokesman Abu Bakr Abdel-Karim said police were looking for six people suspected in Friday's attack, which came after two of them were banned from entering the club-and-eatery in Cairo's Agouza district.Eleven of the victims were staff and employees of the club, and one of the bodies is a woman, added Abdel-Karim.The victims all died of suffocation, said Abdel-Karim, adding that people were trapped inside because the fire was located at the entrance of the club.
