An assassination attempt was made on Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman in recent days, Fox News reported on Saturday.

Two of Suleiman's bodyguards were killed in the attack, according to the report.

Suleiman had been Egypt's Intel chief but was appointed Egypt's first vice president in the thirty year reign of President Hosni Mubarak following the start of mass protests against the regime last week.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs declined to address the reports of an assassination attempt.
