Five people were killed on Friday including two conscripts after unknown assailants had attacked the city council building in Suez, secretary general of the Doctors' Syndicate in Suez Magdy al-Beheiri said.

Al-Beheiri told Aswat Masriya the dead were 17 year-old Mostafa Mahmoud, 29-year old Walid al-Sayed Hassan, 24 year-old Hussein Ibrahim, 22-year old Mahmoud Nabil, and 15 year-old Mahmoud Kalbaz.

Six members of the security forces tasked with guarding the Suez city council were shot after unidentified assailants shot at them with automatic machine guns, an Aswat Masriya eyewitness reported earlier.

Security forces spread in the streets surrounding the city council after the shooting and randomly shot at people in the area.
