5 Killed in Egyptian Riots

Four protesters and a soldier were killed in Cairo and Suez on Friday in the ongoing riots after 74 people died after a soccer match in Port Said, Egypt. Witnesses said police used live ammunition to fire into the crowd of protesters in Suez, and another two were shot just steps away from the Interior Ministry in Cairo. The Health Ministry said at least 668 people were injured in the riots. Protesters charge the military-led government for not preventing a stampede that killed dozens of people at a soccer stadium in Port Said on Wednesday.
