At least nine people have been pronounced dead in the city of Suez, as violence erupted on the Egyptian revolution's second anniversary.

Ahram Online's correspondent obtained the names of some of the deceased: Mostafa Mahmoud Eid (17), Walid El-Sayed Hussein (30), Mohamed Gharib (16), Ali Soliman (19), Mohamed Mahmoud (15), Hussein Mahmoud (36), and Mahmoud Ashour (age unknown).

Suez, which has witnessed some of the fiercest confrontations over the past couple of years, saw clashes on Friday in the vicinity of the governorate headquarters, with protesters and police throwing stones at each other, and some protesters hurling Molotov cocktails at security forces.

The building was eventually set on fire.

Meanwhile, the injury toll has exceeded 250 in nine governorates in Cairo, Alexandria, Beheira, Luxor, Kafr El-Sheikh, Ismailia, Gharbia, Sharqiya, and Suez, according to the health ministry.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, Egypt's armed forces deployed troops on the ground in the city of Suez after eight protesters and a soldier were shot dead in clashes on the second anniversary of the uprising against Hosni Mubarak.

Irrresponsible
Instead of focusing on major issues like eocnomy and security the opposition parties are falling into the trap of reducing up coming election to a battle of identity.The opposition are not helping to build the security and economy but destroy the country.The investor are scare to invest in Egypt because the attitude of the instability contributed by iresponsible opposition.The opposition must take responsiblity for the loss of life and properties for the protest.They must know how peaceful the protest is, it can turn violent as you cannot control.To me Arab are good for nothing except fighting each other and destroy the economy
