Egypt: Clashes in Egypt - 2 Killed

Cairo — Clashes erupted on Friday as thousands of supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood around Egypt held protests. The violence left two dead including a 10-year-old boy.

The boy died while walking near the site of the clashes in Egypt's northern city of Suez, security and medical sources said. He was among a crowd of local residents who came out to fight with the Brotherhood protesters, a doctor in the Suez emergency unit told The Associated Press.

The marches in multiple districts of Cairo and other cities were commemorating the August 14 storming by security forces on two pro-Morsi protest camps in the capital that killed hundreds of Islamists.
