Egypt: One Dead, 20 Injured in Port Said Clashes

One person was killed and at least 20 others were injured in Port Said when clashes flared between Muslim Brotherhood allies and the city's residents, an Aswat Masriya witness reported on Friday.

A pro-Mursi march coming from al-Tawheed Mosque clashed with a group of Port Said residents. The two groups exchanged stones and gunfire.

The injured were taken to Port Said General Hospital, Omar Ibn al-Khattab Hospital, and Aal Suleiman Hospital.

Joint police and army forces contained the clashes.
