President Hosni Mubarak later issued a statement calling for Christians and Muslims to "stand up" against religious violence, Voice of America reported.

His statement called for Egyptians "to close ranks and confront the forces of terrorism and those who want to undermine the security, stability and unity of the children of this nation," Egypt's MENA news agency said.

The blast came from a car bomb a half hour into the New Year in the northern Egyptian port city in front of the Church of Two Saints, CNN reported.

There was no immediate report of the number of people injured, although MENA described the number as "scores."

No group claimed responsibility for the attack. VOA said there has been recent hostility in the area between Muslim and Christian groups over two Coptic women who converted to Islam.
