The wall surrounding Helwan's Military Production Club collapsed last night leaving at least five dead. The five bodies were extracted by the residents of the area since fire brigades arrived late. The collapse came days after Sayed Mashaal, minister of Military Production, won the MP elections.

Independent cadidate Mostafa Bakry supporters, the minister’s opponent in the electoral race, chanted Bakry's name and clashed with police prior to the collapse.
