Local contractor will also carry out restorations to nearby buildings
- Arab Contractors to work on damaged Italian consulate in Cairo
- Building targeted by Islamic State in Iraq and Syria militants
It is understood the firm will also carry out restorations to nearby buildings that were damaged in the attack.
On 11 July, militants from the jihadist group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (Isis) carried out a car bomb attack on the Italian consulate.
One person was killed in the attack, despite the consulate being closed at the time.
This was the latest in a series of isolated attacks across Cairo, although it is the first time this year that an assault has targeted foreigners.
Militants across Egypt have been mainly targeting security personnel and government staff such as the assassination of a public prosecutor in June, followed by battles between militants and the armed forces in north Sinai in the same week.
