Egypt: Two dead as riots continue
Egyptian police shot dead two protesters in the city of Suez as clashes erupted all over Egypt following the death of 74 people in the country's worst football violence in 15 years.
Some 3,000 people demonstrated in front of police headquarters in Suez after news spread that one of the victims in the Port Said riot was from their city. Police fired tear gas and then opened fire, eyewitnesses said. Health official Mohammed Lasheen said two men were killed by bullets. Fifteen other protesters were hurt.
Earlier, protesters shut the doors of the People's Assembly (parliament) and refused to let MPs leave after it held an emergency session to debate the latest violence.
Many in Egypt believe that the incident was organized by supporters of the toppled regime in order to destabilize the country a year after its revolution began.
"It is not an isolated event, it is happening within a series of other incidents, it is the work of the devil,' said the speaker of the Egyptian parliament, Mohamed al-Katatni.
