Egypt: One Dead in Clashes Between Brotherhood and Security in Minya

Minya — One person died in confrontations between security forces and Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Minya's Abu Halal neighborhood on Saturday, an eyewitness said.

It is still unclear whether the person who died belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood or not.

A local bakery and some kiosks were also damaged in the confrontations.

An Islamist alliance that supports ousted President Mohamed Mursi had called for demonstrations on Saturday against the army while army supporters have gathered in Tahrir Square to celebrate.
